Welcome to the Maine Children’s Home for Little Wanderers
At the Maine Children’s Home for Little Wanderers, we believe
every child deserves the right to reach his or her full potential.
Since the inception of our agency in 1899, we have made a difference
in the lives of many children and families throughout the State
The Maine Children’s Home is a very special place. Couples eager
to add to their families come to us for our extensive international
and domestic adoption experience. Parents entrust our early care
and education facility with the nurturing of their children. Teen
parents count on us to provide positive mentoring and the practical
life skills they need to become good parents. Youth, families, and
individuals come to the Maine Children’s Home for compassionate
counseling services in a nurturing environment.
During the holidays the Christmas Program is in full swing. As community members drop off warm clothing and toys, more than 300 volunteers bustle to get gifts sorted and packed by the holidays, ensuring more than 1,600 needy children in Maine will have something special under their tree. In summer, approximately 150 underprivileged boys and girls get to experience summer camp thanks to our scholarship program.
We invite you to learn more about us and welcome you to become part of our growing family! Contact us today!
