It’s Thank you Thursday. Today’s shout out of Mission love goes to Mark Green, Executive Director of Downeast Community Partners (DCP). Mark has recently announced his upcoming retirement.
Mission Housing Rehabilitation Manager Scott Shaw said, “When Mark Green started as Executive Director for DCP, we spoke about the Mission Housing Repair Program. He showed a lot of interest. As I learned about their Weatherization Program I began referring eligible families we were assisting.
“As Mark and I communicated more, we utilized their services for our Housing Program, and we became closer, eventually growing into the partnership we now have. Ours is a case of two organizations looking beyond what we do separately, to the positive impact we have working together for the families we both serve.
“Mark made CF Adams Charitable Trust aware of our housing partnership. As a result, program funding took off. With our many exceptional volunteers from in- and out-of-state, we were able to take on larger home rehabilitation projects. The Mission’s Housing Repair Program was reborn as our Housing Rehabilitation Program.
“The Mobile Home Rehabilitation Program and, most recently, the Downeast Maine Tiny House Project, are other Downeast Community Partners/Maine Seacoast Mission success stories.
“Bottom line? Mark Green and DCP improved many lives,” Scott Shaw said.
This is what community looks like.
