Over the past three years, the Staff and Board of Directors of the Mexican American Unity Council, Inc. (MAUC) have worked diligently to refine the vision and mission of this venerable organization. Although MAUC has a forty-three year history of serving this community, it is always wise for an organization to assess and adjust priorities in order to meet the needs of a vibrant and diverse city like San Antonio.
Today, in light of the economic turmoil in the national and global economy, the need to reassess and develop realistic strategic goals becomes even more vital if MAUC is to continue its work into the next decade. To this end, MAUC’s mission will no longer be limited to Bexar County; but will encompass the state of Texas. This change in its mission statement will allow us to expand the scope of our work in the area of greatest expertise—Affordable Housing.
