A healthy community is one in which every person feels included, particularly the elderly and the vulnerable. Working to foster partnerships that create safe, supportive living environments for special needs populations, New Communities is making an impact on hundreds of lives in Maine.

We are working to redefine a model of care, from "assisted living" to "living with assistance" — an important difference — by helping aging seniors, people living with mental health challenges, and individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities remain as active and engaged in their communities as possible.

Healthier Communities

We see the impact of our work every day: in the happiness of our residents, the gratitude of their families, the tireless dedication of our employees, and the enthusiasm of our growing ranks of volunteers.

Because finding new and better ways to help all members of our community live fuller and more productive lives means a healthier future for us all.

"When you hear the New Communities people talk about what they do and the impact of what they do... taking care of someone's parent... giving someone back their dignity and independence... amazing, inspiring stories."
