  • About Us
    Healthy Acadia is a 501(c)(3) non-profit community health organization working to address critical, locally defined health priorities. We serve Washington and Hancock counties, and we provide additional community health support and leadership across Maine. Healthy Acadia’s mission is to empower people and organizations as we build healthy communities together.

    Since 2001, we have worked together with hundreds of partners and thousands of community members to address a wide range of local health needs. 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 build partnerships, coordinate health education and public health services, and improve policies, systems, and environments to create positive and lasting change.
  • Our Impact
    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.
