“The miraculous thing about United Way is that it goes to show that the community can make a difference with everyone contributing a little bit.”
- Megan Quillinan, Executive Director of MACSC

Tammy is a single mother of two children. When she moved to Mechanicville, she needed help getting on her feet. Tammy found guidance through the Mechanicville Area Community Services Center (MACSC), one of five Family & Neighborhood Resource Centers funded by the United Way of the Greater Capital Region.  Family & Neighborhood Resource Centers serve as welcoming, one-stop locations where families have access to a network of coordinated services close to home including food or housing, crisis services, employment assistance and services to improve health and wellness.
