Success Stories

Like many Maine residents, our patients often face challenges with making ends meet. The loss of jobs, reductions in working hours and income, and the school and childcare closures resulting from COVID-19 have exacerbated these struggles and forced more individuals and families to seek assistance with meeting basic needs. The additional emotional and financial challenges faced by those with cancer and other high-risk chronic conditions are also being made worse by the pandemic. Access to reliable and nutritious food has emerged as critical need of our patients as a result of this pandemic.
