Healthy Acadia’s mission is to empower people and organizations to build healthy communities. We address the critical health challenges our communities face and make it possible for all people to lead healthier lives throughout Hancock and Washington counties, Maine.
We are a community health coalition, working since 2001 with hundreds of partners and thousands of community members in the two counties to address a wide range of local health needs. We build partnerships, coordinate education and public health services, and improve policies, systems and environments to create lasting positive changes to the health of our communities.
We provide many different services including youth engagement opportunities through our District Youth Coordinator Gabe O’Brien. We are committed to provide resources and skill development for the young people in our communities so that they may become stock holders and change makers. Youth are vital to create sustainable, equitable and healthy solutions!
