Our Outreach Mission
With Millennium Development Goals in mind, Trinity’s outreach efforts touch many corners of the world. Our three recipients, chosen at years end, change annually and include local, national and international humanitarian organizations. Listed below are the 2017 organizations chosen.
Time of Wonder Early Learning Center www.stgeorgesyorkharbor.org/serve/partnerships.
Operated by St. George’s Church, Time of Wonder Early Learning Center is committed to providing quality affordable child care and a positive academic experience for each child. For many families, this is the only place within their budget as child care expenses continue to soar. Providing a safe, loving, and healthy environment for children is key to child development. Trinity’s donation will be applied to tuition balance for a family who does not qualify for state or local financial assistance programs.
Trinity Jubilee Center
The Trinity Jubilee Center’s Refugee Integration Program is one of the largest immigrant integration programs in Androscoggin County. Refugees and asylum seekers from Somalia, Djibouti, Angola, Democratic Republic of Congo, Burundi and other countries ask for help as they build a new life for their families. The most common request is for help with writing a resume, searching for job openings and completing applications. Other work includes assistance completing housing applications, addressing housing concerns, petitioning for adjustments to immigration status and completing FAFSA as well as college applications. Services are available in Somali and French.
