AMHC Receives COVID-19 Funding from Maine Community Foundation

Maria Dubois, AMHC Mobile Emergency Services Specialist, dons her PPE as she provides services at a local hospital. Full PPE was a requirement for several months. Foundations like Maine Community Foundation helped support the purchase of equipment and supplies.

Aroostook Mental Health Services, Inc. (AMHC) has received a total of $15,000 from the Maine Community Foundation’s (MCF) COVID-19 Emergency Response Funds. “The donations received by the Maine Community Foundation in the past year have helped our agency purchase personal protective equipment (PPE), cleaning supplies, and more,” said Ellen Bemis, CEO.

Maine Community Foundation has alleviated some of the financial pressure AMHC has experienced due to the pandemic. “Their support has helped us to continue our mission to deliver behavioral health services to individuals and families in our service area,” shared Bemis. “We are grateful.”
