ABOUT US

jimboatHealthy Casco Bay is one of two Healthy Maine Partnerships hosted in the City of Portland’s Public Health Division, Health and Human Services Department.   Healthy Casco Bay is funded with tobacco settlement dollars from the Fund for a Healthy Maine.

Healthy Casco Bay was formed in October of 2007.  We work with our community and regional partners to improve the health and well-being of folks who live and work from the shore to the woods in the Casco Bay region. We serve the towns of Cumberland, Chebeague Island, Falmouth, Freeport, Gray, Long Island, New Gloucester, North Yarmouth, Pownal, and Yarmouth.

sarahonbeachHealthy Casco Bay’s mission is to reduce tobacco use, encourage physical activity, improve nutrition, and prevent substance abuse. We provide technical and financial support for community initiatives, and are a resource to any resident seeking to improve their personal health, or the health of their town. We welcome the opportunity to develop local ideas and programs!
