Our mission is to strengthen, encourage and support families in our community through a variety of programs and services.
To get to know the heart of MCSM a little better, here are a couple of stories from people who have come through our doors …
A story of transformation … “Every time I enter this room I feel it is at its best. There are times it’s been busy and bustling with everyone active - times when there were a few people reading, sitting, visiting - times when people have differing opinions - in short, it is a place where people can share laughter, compromise, tears, quiet. Since I’ve been coming here, I’ve felt welcomed and visible. Not only that, but cherished as a fellow human being. Because of this I have been offering to help other people by walking with them, being a sounding board, and helping them feel somewhat connected with the world. I have not had a lot of exposure to people sharing their lives so openly and they are searching for the same things I am.” Turners Falls Women’s Resource Center participant
Molly’s story … “When walking into MCSM I was faced with a crisis so big, I thought, for anyone to handle. Little did I know I was wrong. MCSM has helped me get through a domestic violence situation and is in the process of helping me regain custody of my son. From simple things such as food, playgroups, or diapers to advocating and getting a restraining order, they have been by my side. They have given me the tools to provide my son with a healthy, loving, safe environment for him to grow. MSCM has been one of the greatest supports I have had in my entire life.” MCSM Program participant
