New Resource for Locating Services and Supports for Families in Maine
Posted on May 16, 2022
In an effort to increase knowledge of the existing services and supports for individuals and families in Maine, the Office of Child and Family Services (OCFS) worked closely with other state agency partners to develop a Family Services Resource Guide, also known as Access Maine. This online tool (www.AccessMaine.org) launched in April 2022 and includes an inventory of state-level programs that will connect OCFS staff, service providers, individuals, and families to resources that can support everyone in Maine to be safe, happy, healthy, and successful. This tool complements the existing 211 Maine program (www.211Maine.org) where individuals can call, text, or go online to be connected to community-level resources in Maine.
For more information about these resources, please see the Locating Services and Supports for Families in Maine Fact Sheet and Webinar recording.
