This organization is truly committed to coming to the aid to people in need , and they do a GREAT JOB. Both staff and volunteers alike work together in treating those in need with respect, dignity, and truly go the extra mile to helping individuals get back on their feet. Over and over again, clients have told me how thankful they are for the Midtown Assistance Center, and how much MAC has helped them financially and emotionally.
Due to illness in my family, I have not been able to volunteer in recent months, but I consider MAC to be the premier organization in Atlanta, and I very much look forward to returning to MAC.

MAC is a an organization comprised of caring and knowledgeable people, both employees and volunteers, who seek to assist those who are unemployed or underemployed. Over the past three years I've volunteered on many occasions and can't express how it warms my heart to see the appreciation on clients' faces as they receive rent and utility assistance or groceries. MAC has succeeded in keeping many residences of Atlanta from being homeless and hungry. They are truly a blessing to many, many Atlanta residents.

The organization serves its clients well. As many in the current economy, they are in need of additional funds to continue their mission.
