General Assistance

General Assistance allows us to provide aid, under strict guidelines, to individuals and families in financial crisis within the Scarborough community. 
The GA Ordinance provides a fair and consistent mechanism in which to comply with state welfare guidelines. We work closely with various units of the Maine Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and with social service agencies such as Southern Maine Agency on Aging, Catholic Charities, Project Grace and People’s Regional Opportunity Program (PROP). 

In addition to providing financial assistance to residents who qualify for General Assistance, we speak with them, whether they qualify for assistance or not, about other opportunities available to meet their needs (i.e. housing, fuel assistance, employment, etc.). 

For more information, please contact René Daniel, General Assistance Coordinator.
