Mission of Midcoast Maine Community Action

Building better lives for stronger communities.


Midcoast Maine Community Action (MMCA) empowers people to build better lives for stronger communities. The agency connects the community with resources that promote health and quality of life, education and economic independence. MMCA supports regional activities which encourage economic sustainability and social equity within the midcoast area.

MMCA’s Community Needs Assessment describe the fundamental economic challenges facing Mainers, including those affecting people in our home communities in Knox, Waldo, Sagadahoc, and Lincoln counties. The Community Needs Assessments establish profiles of communities, noting both needs as well as the resources available to help. The Community Needs Assessment conducted by the Maine Community Action Partnership (MeCAP) can be found here.

MMCA’s Strategic Plan provides detailed information about our organizational goals and objectives to meet the community’s needs.
