Mission Statement info

THE ULTIMATE GOAL IS IMPROVING THE LIVES OF CHILDREN, FAMILIES, AND SENIORS IN EASTERN MAINE. WE STRIVE TO MAKE SURE CHILDREN ARE READY TO LEARN, FAMILIES ARE SAFE AND SELF-SUFFICIENT, AND SENIORS REMAIN INDEPENDENT AND ACTIVE. WE ACCOMPLISH OUR RESULTS BY BRINGING TOGETHER SUBJECT EXPERTS, BUSINESS LEADERS, DONORS, NEIGHBORHOODS, AND MEMBERS OF LOCAL NONPROFIT AGENCIES. THESE COMMUNITY MEMBERS HELP IDENTIFY OUR COMMUNITY'S MOST CRITICAL SOCIAL ISSUES. IN FORMING THESE PARTNERSHIPS, WE ARE BETTER ABLE TO ADDRESS THE UNDERLYING CAUSES OF PROBLEMS IN OUR COMMUNITY AND PREVENT THEM FROM HAPPENING. UWEM RAISES FUNDS FROM THE COMMUNITY TO ADDRESS THE UNDERLYING ROOT CAUSE OF THE COMMUNITY'S MOST PRESSING ISSUES. IN 2017-2018 MORE THAN 60,000 INDIVIDUALS WERE SUPPORTED THROUGH THE EFFORTS OF UWEM, THIS REPRESENTS 20% OF THE POPULATION OF EASTERN MAINE. FOR EVERY $1.00 DONATED TO UWEM A $4.10 RETURN WAS REALIZED.
