$10,000 Gift to Assist MAAC’s Older Youth Programs
ATLANTA (November 28, 2022) – CareSource, a leading Medicaid provider in Georgia with over 500,000 members, announced today a donation of $10,000 from the CareSource Foundation to the Multi-Agency Alliance for Children (MAAC). MAAC is a collaborative effort focused on helping youth who have experienced foster care in the state of Georgia and overcome their unique challenges to find success.
“We are grateful for this support from CareSource and their attention to our young people who are in or formerly in foster care. These funds will help meet needs that can greatly impact their and their family’s future, helping keep them on a path to education, stable employment and success,” said Heather Rowles, Executive Director, MAAC.
CareSource Foundation’s donation will be used to support young people in MAAC’s older youth programs, such as Teen Parent Connection, MAAC Education and Training and Empowerment.
“Since establishing the CareSource Foundation, we continue to deliver on our promise to support our members outside of their healthcare needs to combat the social determinants of health that often affect their futures,” said Jason Bearden, Georgia Market President, CareSource. “Through the help and dedication of MAAC, we are able to contribute to securing the best possible outcomes for youth in and transitioning out of foster care.”
Since 2006, the CareSource Foundation has awarded more than $27.2 million to nonprofits that are working to eliminate poverty, provide much-needed services to low-and moderate-income families, encourage healthy communities, develop innovative approaches to address critical health issues and enhance the lives of a diverse array of children, adults and families.
