Our Purpose

Southern Maine is known to be an amazing place to live and work. We’re committed to making that true for each and every member of our community – by working to create a better today and invest in a brighter tomorrow. A tomorrow where kids have a strong start, our neighbors thrive, and we all live longer, better. We work to inspire and unite our communities and collectively build stronger neighborhoods.

We Don’t Do It Alone

For more than 90 years, we’ve been strengthening our community and have witnessed the transformational power of working together. We build partnerships with corporations, nonprofits, donors, volunteers, and community-minded leaders. Together we innovate the way people, organizations, and systems work together to improve education, financial stability, and health for every person in Southern Maine.
