Addiction Recovery


For too long, opioid addiction was not even recognized as the crisis it was. Fortunately, that ignorance has been shattered but so have many lives that got caught up in it. Addiction recovery is serious business and it takes a community to help those whose lives have been affected by it. It takes a lot of effort, a lot of compassion, and a lot of time but real solutions are available and lives can be restored. Below is one of the organizations we have recently worked with in this area.

Mid-Coast Recovery Coalition

Addiction to drugs or alcohol has become an all too common in mid-coast Maine, taking its toll on individuals and families throughout our communities. The good news is that it does not need to ruin lives and destroy families.

Childhood Hunger


In too many places, children are going without food even in situations where food supply is abundant. Whether a problem of supply or distribution, no child should suffer from hunger. Here are some of the organizations we are working with to nourish, strengthen, and save our children. The SWMF continues to identify and work with these kinds of organizations around the world.

End 68 Hours

Child Services


In addition to hunger, there are many other issues adversely affecting our children. Abuse, neglect, illness, abandonment, and the losing of their closest loved ones are just some of the issues facing our children. Any sector of humanitarian crisis involving children is especially dear to the mission of SWMF. Below are some of the organizations doing phenomenal work worthy of your discovery. Check them out and learn what more can be done.

Community Services


This is a broad topic and can refer to many things. At the SWMF, we try to identify organizations that are serving their communities in ways and places that the traditional safety nets have overlooked. These kinds of organizations often prove to be very perceptive and effective in critical areas you may have never thought about.

One Community, Many Voices

Domestic Abuse


Women and children, and even some men, are suffering from abuse and violence in every community, but their cries are often unheard. They often live under fear and threat of harm should they ever let anyone know. This keeps many from coming forward. Helping those affected takes strategy, skills, and support from many sectors. 
Thankfully, there are wonderful organizations set up to do just that. Here are two exceptional organizations you should know about. 

Partners of Peace

Our mission is to engage individuals and the community to end domestic violence in Penobscot and Piscataquis Counties.  We provide support, advocacy and safety planning to anyone affected by domestic abuse.

Emergency Medical Supplies


Across America, many hospitals have been disposing their surplus medical supplies into landfills at the cost of hundreds of thousands of dollars each year. This has been occurring despite the fact the surplus supplies were still usable, often unexpired, and needed in other places. Organizations like the one below have disrupted such environmentally harmful practices, and instead have shipped the life-saving supplies to places and people around the world who desperately need them. This is a solution you will want to learn more about.

Partners for World Health

Collects medical supplies and equipment from healthcare facilities, manufacturers, other organizations, and individuals. We sort, evaluate, repackage, and prepare these supplies and equipment for distribution to individuals, communities, and healthcare facilities in need.

Environment


One of the conflicts that the SWMF likes to address is the one involving man vs. nature. Historically, this conflict typically referred to natural disasters such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, or severe weather events. These days, it includes environmental stewardship because without a safe environment mankind will suffer, if not perish. The SWMF is looking forward to identifying additional organizations who are doing the kind of exceptional work as exemplified by the one below. Definitely, check out Jim Chase  and his team.

Seacoast Science Center

The Seacoast Science Center is a non-profit marine science education organization located within Odiorne Point State Park in Rye, New Hampshire. Our mission is to spark curiosity, enhance understanding, and inspire conservation of our Blue Planet.

Homelessness


For many of us, our home is our safe space. It is our sanctuary, our safe harbour, and our refuge. For far too many people, it is non-existent. Men, women, and children are living without shelter in many places around the world. Below are the organizations SWMF has been working with to help people find shelter, receive medical services, acquire vocational training, and reconnect with others over time. Each has their specialty and their different ways and methods are worth learning about. Explore them and find out if any might be a perfect fit for you to help, or maybe you can apply their solutions to homelessness in your area.

Human Trafficking


Human slavery is a travesty. It should never happen but it's happening everywhere. Big cities. Small towns. Foreign countries. Your country. Mostly, they are girls and women but also boys and men. It's horrid, tragic, and torturous. It is globally organized crime and it is local, corrupt activity. SWMF is on the frontlines combatting this terrible assault on our sisters, daughters, mothers, and other family members. They are each our family. You can help us help them by learning about the efforts below and tracking with us in our latest campaigns.

Immigration


When we look at people from the outside looking in, we may think we see many differences. When we look at each other from the inside out, when we listen to each other's stories, when we learn our shared dreams, hopes, and struggles - we realize we have more in common than we've ever imagined. Understanding this is one of the biggest keys to appreciating, valuing, and welcoming diversity of race, ethnicity, and origin. Check out the wonderful organization below and the amazing work they are doing. The SWMF will be doing more and more in this area very soon.
