Organization: Mano en Mano/Hand in Hand

Mission: Mano en Mano works with farmworkers statewide and immigrants in Downeast Maine to empower them to thrive.

Recent Programs: We are currently supporting workers arriving in Maine for the potato, apple, broccoli and wreath seasons.  We are expecting more than 1,000 workers to arrive in Downeast Maine this season and working to support them in accessing resources and services in the areas of: health, education, transportation, legal, and more!  We are accepting donations of warm clothing, blankets, and shoes to keep our communities warm this winter. We will be having a fundraiser with Fogtown Brewery in Ellsworth this fall!  (date to be confirmed). If folks want to get to know more of what we are up to, please subscribe to our newsletter.
