Maine Families believes that all parents and caregivers want the best for their families, but raising children is extremely challenging. Our experienced Family Visitors give parents the space to explore their hopes and dreams for their family, learn how to care for their baby and themselves, and express their doubts and fears about their new role as parents. We believe that confident parents raise confident children. During regularly scheduled visits, parents will have the opportunity to ask questions, share their thoughts and experiences about parenting in a confidential space, and receive reliable information based on their interests and needs on topics such as healthy pregnancy, feeding, sleeping, child development, discipline, home safety, routines, community resources, school readiness, and age-appropriate activities. Visits are always free and voluntary and can happen in the home, virtually, or wherever works best for the family.
The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children — better known as the WIC Program — serves to safeguard the health of low-income pregnant, postpartum, and breastfeeding people, infants, and children up to age five who are at nutritional risk by providing nutritious foods to supplement diets, information on healthy eating including breastfeeding promotion and support, and referrals to health care. TOA provided uninterrupted WIC services and benefits throughout the pandemic via telehealth and served about 2,800 families in 2020.
I would like to take a moment to introduce you to the Cumberland Bar Association, an important part in making Cumberland County a great place to practice law.
The CBA is one of the oldest organized bar associations in the United States and currently has over 500 members. Please visit the “Membership” section for more information on joining.
Our mission is to enhance the professional lives of our members and to improve the administration of the law by promoting civility, collegiality, education and justice. Some of the ways we accomplish these goals are:
Continuing Legal Education-With CLE a requirement to maintain your license, we offer several seminars throughout the year on a variety of topics. CBA members pay a reduced rate for these seminars and you can satisfy most of your CLE requirements just by attending these programs.
Annual Meeting-Each year the CBA sponsors its annual meeting of members featuring a well-known speaker and providing an opportunity to get reacquainted with old friends and meet new ones.
Community Support-The CBA collaborates with many groups that are beneficial to your practice and the community including the Cleaves Law Library and the Maine State Bar Association. The CBA also supports access to justice projects through its Grants program.
