DOVER-FOXCROFT, Maine — The Charlotte White Center recently received $50,000 from the Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation to help the agency operate its LifeJackets program and to fund a customized housing market study.
LifeJackets is a collaborative school and community-based youth development program that offers young people opportunities to build trust, respect, dignity, life skills, and self-esteem. The program empowers youths to take personal responsibility for their choices and actions through peer support, community service, wilderness adventure and mentoring.
The housing market study will determine the housing needs of people with special needs, vulnerable populations and the general senior population in Piscataquis and Penobscot counties.
The Charlotte White Center is a multiservice community agency with headquarters in Dover-Foxcroft. Programs provide a wide variety of services to adults and children living with challenges due to intellectual and developmental disabilities or behavioral health concerns.
Those who would like to contribute to the Charlotte White Center’s LifeJackets or other programs may send donations to the attention of Robbie Butcher at 572 Bangor Road, Dover-Foxcroft 04426.
