It’s Thank you Thursday. Today’s shout out of Mission love goes to The Community Caring Collaborative (CCC) of East Machias, ME.
The CCC, founded in 2007, focuses in a growing number of areas, “to address the issues of at-risk infants, young children, and their families” in Washington County. The CCC is doing that work by finding ways to help nonprofits, government agencies, and other entities do their own work inside Washington County to address “the challenges of poverty, trauma, substance abuse, major health issues, the process of aging, or other factors can make people vulnerable.”
Mission Director of Services Programs Wendy Harrington said, “By building the CCC we have been better able to see the ways we can work together and strengthen what’s going on for the people in our county.” Wendy praises CCC as mentors, a partner organization, and for their generosity. “They’ve just been a good friend,” she summarizes. “Washington County is stronger because of the work CCC has done.”
This is what community looks like.
