MAIN was originally founded in 2002 as a 501(c)(3) by Mohamud Barre and the resettled Somali community. The organization was initially named Somali Culture and Development Association and its mission was to embrace the vision of a free standing community center with staffing to support all Somalis for access to information, resources and services. It was formally renamed to Maine Access Immigrant Network in spring 2014. MAIN has since expanded to serve other African groups, including South Sudanese, Rwandan, Burundian, and Congolese, and continues to expand with services to Middle Eastern and other refugee groups.

HEALTH CARE ACCESS
The help MAIN provides is determined by the help you need. If MAIN can’t help you directly, we will connect you with the resources you need and advocate on your behalf. MAIN specializes in providing healthcare outreach, chronic disease and preventative health education and “Obamacare” enrollment.
MAIN hosts monthly Healthy You workshops that are about chronic disease and preventative health education. We invite the community to take part in these educational workshops that are taught by qualified health professionals.
