Who We Are

Since 1905, Maine Seacoast Mission has been committed to the people of Maine’s outer islands and Downeast coastal communities. Our experienced, caring staff live and work in those communities. Together, we offer healthcare, education, food, shelter, and spiritual support by land and by sea.
