Infant Family Support Program Receives Grant from Maine Community Foundation

Maine Coast Memorial Hospital’s Infant Family Support Program (IFSP) has received a grant from the Maine Community Foundation’s Washington County Fund. This grant will enable the IFSP to expand its services to the Eleanor Widener Dixon Memorial Clinic in Gouldsboro.

In 2005, the Hancock County Infant Mental Health Coalition was formed by Maine Coast Memorial Hospital, Downeast Health Services, Special Children’s Friends, Child and Family Opportunities, Hancock County Children’s Council, and the Maine Association for Infant Mental Health. Open to all community members who are interested in the healthy growth and development of infants and young children, the Coalition pools resources to maximize the emotional, physical, social, and cognitive well-being of children ages 0-3 and their caregivers.

The Infant Family Support Program, based on the Healthy StepsSM Program model, is the first program initiated by the Coalition.

If there’s a Maine Loon License Plate on your vehicle, you’re supporting conservation and wildlife efforts in Maine. If there’s a Maine Loon License Plate on your vehicle, you also get free admission this weekend to all Maine state parks and historic sites.

“The call of the loon – and consequently, the Maine Loon License Plate – captures so much of what the nature means to Maine people, from the coast to our most remote ponds,” Conservation Commissioner Bill Beardsley said. “It reminds us of the precious and fragile quality of place we love.
