The Allen County Multi-Agency Team (ACMAT) was created in 1994 as part of the KanFocus grant initiative in Kansas. The goal of this coalition at the time was to bring organizations and individuals together to collaborate and share information to better serve children and families in crisis in Allen County. The initial funding was used to support local non-profits that promote educational and healthy programs that served children and families. Once funding dissolved the coalition continued to meet as an information sharing and collaborative group. In 2007, new leadership helped transition the group to a more action oriented and visible coalition – taking on larger initiatives and identifying more critical issues in Allen County. ACMAT is committed to providing a unified service system that collaborates with community partners and pulls resources to meet the needs of children, individuals, families and community members.
ACMAT’s mission is to have agencies collaborate together for a healthier community.
