Community Action in a Pandemic
It is July in Maine, and nothing is as you would expect. The hail was so deep during a storm in York County last week, snowplows were called in. The lines of cars were stacked up before the Independence Day holiday, but that's been unusual this year. So what's a Mainer to do? Staycation, support your local economy, and if you need help making ends meet due to losing your job, childcare, or you need rent, call your local Community Action Agency (CAA).
Today's eNews is all about where we are today, and how we've been here for you. Our programs are many, and vary across the state, but the big issues we have in common. The issues that face our state: high energy prices, safe and healthy aging and the lack of transportation are on our minds every day. So we partner with other organizations to seek solutions. Here are some of those partnerships, in action.
