Healthy Acadia: Building Vibrant Communities
 

Community Health Connects Us All

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.

 

Healthy Acadia works on a broad range of collaborative community health initiatives, with six areas of focus:

Strong Beginnings - to support healthy development and resilience from birth to adulthood;

Healthy Food for All - to ensure that all people have access to nutritious, affordable food, and to make the healthy choice the easy choice;

Active and Healthy Environments - to ensure that our indoor and outdoor spaces are safe, healthy, and promote physical activity and wellness;

Healthy Aging - to ensure that all of us can age well - with strength, dignity, comfort and grace;

Substance Prevention and Recovery - to support people of all ages to live lives free of substance misuse and substance use disorder, and to support individuals throughout their recovery journey; and

Health Promotion & Management - to improve community supports across a wide range of health needs, from cancer patient navigation and stress reduction, to barrier removal for health challenges and chronic disease and pain self-management.

 

Healthy Acadia is dedicated to making it easier for people to make healthy choices for themselves and their families.

Healthy Acadia is a 501(c)(3) non-profit community health organization working to address critical, locally defined health priorities. We rely on both private and public funding sources to bring about lasting change in Hancock and Washington counties, Maine.
