Macon Bibb Citizen Advocacy depends on the support of local citizens. All investments directly benefit the Macon/Bibb County community. From a cost-benefit perspective, the work accomplished by MBCA is tremendous. It is impossible to assign a dollar value to the ongoing relationships formed that not only prevent people with disabilities from being harmed but also improve the lives of community members with and without disabilities. Furthermore, if one was to attempt to replace these relationships with paid human services, the quality could not be matched; the relationships would not be sustained; and the costs would be multiplied several times over.
