YCCAC’s Community Outreach workers are on the job, ready to help
York County Community Action’s Economic Opportunity Department has made adjustments to its programs and services due to the coronavirus pandemic, but Community Outreach staff are still available to provide assistance to those in need.
Economic Opportunity Director Mesha Quinn says that the best way to schedule an appointment with an outreach worker is to call the Sanford office at 324-5762 or 800 644-4242. “You will be connected with an outreach staff member nearest to where you live,” Ms. Quinn says. There are outreach offices in Sanford, Biddeford and Kittery, and all offices are open Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Outreach appointments can be taken by phone; there are no face-to-face meetings. This precaution adheres to Maine’s social distancing guidelines to safeguard health during the coronavirus pandemic. Persons who come to the Sanford office will be asked to call the Outreach office for further guidance.
“Resources are changing daily and we are here to help people maneuver through this difficult time,” Ms. Quinn says. “The more we know about the specific needs in our community, the better we can respond. Outreach workers are here and ready to provide assistance.”
