About the Foundation


We are a grass roots, community-­‐based organization that is chartered to:

  • Work with our community residents to identify health and wellness needs on our Maine peninsula (Southport, Boothbay Harbor, Boothbay, and Edgecomb)

We identify health & wellness needs, advocate for our community members, and support our citizens in designing the services they need locally.

We believe in citizen engagement, customer co-­‐design, and patient and customer empowerment.
