MMCA Responds to COVID-19

During this unprecedented time, Midcoast Maine Community Action continues to build better lives for stronger communities. Below is a brief overview of our operations across several of our key programs.

All MMCA visitors, staff and tenants must conduct a daily health check and abide by our health and safety protocols before entering one of our facilities.

Head Start and Early Head Start

MMCA’s Head Start classrooms re-opened on September 1, 2020. To contact our Head Start program email hsrecruitment@mmcacorp.org or call 207-442-7963.

Emergency Services

MMCA is providing services to families that qualify for heating assistance, emergency utility support, rent relief and security deposit assistance. In some locations, we are able to assist clients with obtaining essential items needed for daily living.

Emergency Services staff also help to coordinate housing assistance for homeless, at-risk individuals, and families by providing referrals and access to emergency funds that are available to residents of northern Cumberland, Sagadahoc and Lincoln counties. We also provide counseling services, referrals, advocacy, budgeting assistance, and daily living emergency services.

If you are needing assistance through Emergency Services you can reach Missy Kettell at 207-522-2745 or melissa.kettell@mmcacorp.org.

Family Development Case Management

MMCA is available to assist families with case management services in northern Cumberland, Sagadahoc and Lincoln counties. Crissia Lindsey, MMCA’s Family Development Case Manager, is available to assist you with connections to vital resources during this time.  She is also available to provide case management services to those that need support navigating through this difficult time. Crissia can be reached at 207-373-8298 or Crissia.lindsey@mmcacorp.org.

Women, Infants and Children (WIC)

MMCA’s WIC services are available in Knox, Waldo, Lincoln and Sagadahoc Counties. Staff are currently located on-site at MMCA’s three main locations in Bath, Rockland and the Belfast offices.

If you need assistance, including gaining access to infant formula, please call Sarah Lash at 207-319-0475 or sarah.lash@mmcacorp.org.

Families CAN!
