Healthy Acadia

Healthy Acadia is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that works on a broad range of community health initiatives that help Hancock and Washington counties thrive and provide additional community health support and leadership across Maine. Since 2001, we have worked to identify priority health needs and to address root causes. We convene and facilitate numerous collaborative community efforts with shared leadership from many sectors to develop plans and take action to improve health and wellbeing and to rapidly respond to critical and emergent health needs in our communities.
