Please help us make our 20th Anniversary extra special by helping us help others!

Community Care has been selected as One of the Best Places to Work in Maine for the 3rd year in a Row, coming in 2nd this year!

We were selected after a rigorous evaluation process which included an assessment of benefits, policies, and working conditions as well an extensive confidential survey completed by staff.

The survey responses reflect the value that the Community Care Board and Management team place on our wonderful staff.  Here are some of the comments that our staff included in their survey responses when asked what they liked about being a part of Community Care:

mmunity Care is an agency that truly wants to hear from their staff on what is going well and what the agency could improve upon.  In the course of time I have been here I have seen the management team make several changes for the benefit of the employees based off of their feedback.  I feel heard as an employee and I feel more supported than any other job I have ever had.”

First and foremost this agency believes in unconditional positive regard for all of it clients and families. Families are first while at the same time staff are supported and offered what is needed in order to delivery high quality services.”

“Flexibility, great benefits, relaxed environment, understanding co-workers and supervisors.”

I feel valued by my supervisor as well as my employer. I have never had that experience before. My current job provides me with the best supervisor I have ever had as well as the best company I have ever worked for, how can you beat that!!!!!”

This is a place for people who are motivated to make a difference in the world. This is a place where an employee can feel respected and honored for the work that they do. There are frequently small celebrations in appreciation for our work.”

Community Care has fantastic staff who do such great work for our clients every day.   The Management Team strives to offer a workplace that respects and encourages flexibility and personal/ work life balance.  We are committed to putting our resources towards ensuring that our staff have the best compensation and benefits that we can afford, as well as a work environment where staff are respected always.

Community Care is proud to be celebrating 20 years of service and support to the children, teens, families, and individuals who need us throughout Maine!  In November of 1995, we began providing treatment foster care (under a different name) to a small number of kids in a small area of Maine.  We have expanded our services in scope, type, and geographical areas over the past twenty years.   We now serve children, families, and adults from Fort Kent to York to Greenville to Perry and everywhere in between!   We continue to serve children in the Treatment Foster Care program but we also serve children and families through our Community Family Support Services (CFSS/HCT) program, Outpatient Clinic, Targeted Case Management (TCM), and Alternative Response (ARP) programs.   We now serve adults in our Community Integration (CI) program, Behavioral Health Home (BHH), Outpatient Clinic, and Independent Living Program (ILP).  

We are extremely proud of what we do and how we do it.   We have achieved national accreditation because of our high quality services and strong support and leadership infrastructure.   We have been selected as one of the Best Places to Work in Maine for three years in a row—very unusual for a non-profit human service agency!  We put quality of service delivery, respect and caring of our clients and our staff first and we strive to do better every day.

Before we start our 21st year, we are celebrating throughout the month of October!   We have chosen to celebrate by helping people who are food insecure.  To that end, all month we will be collecting non-perishable food items for the Shaw House in Brewer, the Skowhegan Food Pantry, and the York County Shelter Programs.   We are also hosting “Community Care Day” on October 28th in Bangor where people who are food/housing insecure or are in need of supports/services can gather at the Brick Church on Union Street to have a free lunch, learn about area supports and services , get help signing up for supports, and choose some food/warm  clothing to take with them.  Entertainment will be provided by a band of musicians from the Shaw House who play with a Community Care clinician-Paul Oxman.   The last thing that we are doing to celebrate is to gather all of our staff together for a big party!  Our foster parents are also gathering together for a celebration!

Congratulations Community Care!!!!

Here’s to another 20 years of helping people in our communities!!!
