Community Care Program

The Community Care program helps Mainers connect to health programs, social services, and other resources across the state. This program is for everyone and is designed for people who may experience barriers in accessing resources that they are eligible for.

Fill out our referral form to get connected to a variety of resources, including but not limited to:

  • Culturally and linguistically appropriate services
  • Resources for mothers, babies, and children
  • Assistance navigating the healthcare system
  • Health and wellness education
  • Options for food, heating, and transportation resources
  • Support for stress and anxiety
  • COVID-related resources

Please submit one referral per household.

Based on the information provided in the referral form, our staff will connect the community member with an organization who can have an initial discussion about needs and options. Generally, one of our partners will reach out to the client (the person needing the support) in 1-3 days. Please note that each program has its own eligibility requirements, and some resources differ by region.

This program does NOT provide access to emergency resources or services. If you have an urgent medical need or emergency situation, please call your healthcare provider, dial 911, or in the event of mental health emergency please call 988.

This information will only be shared with local partners to address your request; it is not shared with the federal government or immigration. Personal information shared with Maine CDC will be deleted within 90 days or after it is no longer necessary to complete the referral (whichever is longer).

Contact for more information or questions. Our hours of operation are Monday – Friday, 8am-5pm.
