Adult literacy intersects with almost every socioeconomic issue—parenting, health, workforce development, and poverty. Adult education helps break the cycles of intergenerational illiteracy and poverty by giving adults the skills they need to be successful as workers and parents.

Maine Prisoner Re-Entry Network (MPRN), exists to measurably reduce Maine’s recidivism rate. MPRN employs a local community approach to the issues facing the formerly incarcerated and our community at large.

National PTSD Awareness Month

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is an anxiety disorder that some people develop after seeing or living through an event that caused or threatened serious harm or death. PTSD may result in sleep problems, irritability, anger, recurrent dreams about the trauma, intense reactions to reminders of the trauma, disturbances in relationships, and isolation.

National Safety Month

As the pandemic continues, employers play an important role in expanding operations and returning remote workers to physical workspaces, building trust around vaccines, supporting mental health and so much more. Employers wishing to set up a clinic at their office/facility can help get their employees vaccinated.
