Today, June 21…Cinnamon Girl donates $1-A-Bun to Spurwink – Behavioral Health and Education Services in Maine

Spurwink provides behavioral health and education services for children, adults and families.

In 1960, Spurwink began with one house in Portland, Maine, serving eight boys. Today, it operates two active residential campuses serving children, 22 group home settings for adults, one group home intermediate care facility, one nursing home/intermediate care facility for adults, and four day treatment special purpose private schools, including a preschool. Spurwink has a wide array of community-based, residential and educational services for children, adults, and families across the state. Spurwink’s wide array of community-based services include outpatient therapy, behavioral health home services, treatment foster care, public school counseling, trauma therapy for refugees, forensic child abuse evaluations, a crisis center, opioid health homes, and much more.

Starting with a handful of staff, Spurwink today draws much of its strength from its nearly 1,000 employees. They are the cornerstone of what the organization accomplishes and how services are delivered: developing positive self-regard in those they serve by honoring and respecting who they are, delivering evidence-based treatment, and then building upon the strengths of the individual and the family.

Join me today in supporting this wonderful cause! 10a to 2p on Back Cove across from Hannaford!
