Maine Children’s Home (MCH) is a 501(c)(3) organization offering programs for building and
strengthening families and their children, instilling hope for the future and a better quality of life.
Founded in 1899, the Waterville-based organization has evolved with the changing needs of
families and children, and supports more than 3,000 people each year through five core programs: adoption, counseling, support for pregnant and parenting teens, winter assistance, and caregiver resources.
Family Counseling Center is a state-licensed outpatient mental health program and facility that provides counseling to individuals, couples, children, and families. The center provides a warm, welcoming, and comfortable environment for clients to receive the best possible mental health care.
The Hague-Accredited Family Adoption Program is a comprehensive adoption agency that offers professional services and support to all members of the adoption triad — adoptive parents, birth parents, and adoptees.
Journey Program provides young parents with a stable and productive community environment that empowers them with the knowledge, tools, and skills they need to be academically, financially, and emotionally successful individuals and parents.
Christmas Program provides brand-new clothes, winter essentials, toys, books, and games to more than 1,200 Maine children whose families are facing financial hardship during the winter holiday season. This program that relies on the generosity of so many people — donors, volunteers, and community supporters — also connects families to licensed social workers who can provide mental health and parenting support.
Connected Families Project offers and facilitates trainings, workshops, resources, and support groups that foster nurturing environments where children, youth, and their families can thrive. This initiative is designed for parents, caregivers, educators, families, professionals, and family- or youth-focused communities.
