Time Initiative of Maine

Help Welcome New Mainers



Immigrants and refugees are arriving here in Maine with widely varying levels of government assistance and can find themselves struggling for basic needs, as well as the challenge of language barriers, use of technology, and navigation of support agencies. There are many ways to help both current and arriving families who may or may not be members of TIME. Let's give them a huge welcome and teach some of our Yankee ingenuity! There is an impressive community forming to help new Mainers in lots of ways (CANMP), and TIME wants to support this effort by recording and rewarding all assistance to new Mainers. We hope to engage new Mainers in community with social events in the future. All the information you need to get started helping can be found on their Facebook page called "Welcoming New Mainers"; members can record everything they do to earn time credits here
