As our name implies, Mansfield Advocates for Children (MAC) is strongly involved in advocating for common sense policies that stand to benefit children and their families.

MAC works to implement the Mansfield’s Plan for Young Children, which addresses coordinated strategies to ensure that all Mansfield children birth through eight years old are healthy, successful learners, and their families are connected to the community.
