Genuine Community Involvement

Special Assistance Programs

Our Special Assistance Programs are a safety net for those needing a helping hand... Crisis Assistance, Holiday Food Baskets, Back to School Supplies, Summer Camp Scholarships, a Summer Lunch Program, Youth Tutoring and more. Our programs are 'fluid' and change when the needs of our community change.

Food Pantry

Licensed as an Emergency Food Pantry with the CT Food Bank, the MCS Food Pantry provides clients with 3 meals for 3 days each time they visit. We offer non-perishable items along with fresh produce, eggs and dairy. Our Program is modeled throughout the state because we treat our clients with the dignity they deserve.

Medical Transportation

Through this service, we are able to provide rides to medical, dental and therapy appointments throughout the shoreline area for any Madison resident who has no other means of transportation available. We can also help to ease scheduling conflicts. This is a free service and all Madison residents are eligible.

Hunger On The Shore: MCS Food Pantry Moves From Small Closet to Industrial Space.

Our food pantry was opened in 2006 and was located in a tiny closet, serving non-perishable items to about 10 clients each week. Within 2 years our client list doubled and the pantry moved to a new location allowing the addition perishable items. What started as a small project, the pantry is now our largest program. MCS, does not receive local, state or federal funds which means we rely on community to support our projects... and oh, what a community we live in!

Special Programs for Special Needs

All of the programs that MCS, Inc offer are considered fluid. In other words, we keep our thumb on the pulse of the community and adapt our programs to changing needs. We call these our Special Assistance Programs, Some of them, like our Holiday Food Baskets have been around for decades, all of them are provided at no cost to Madison Residents who need them. Several of these programs are centered on the needs of our children, including our newest, which was added in the spring of 2016.
