Mission & Vision
It is the mission of Eastern Area Agency on Aging to provide older adults, caregivers and adults with disabilities in Hancock, Penobscot, Piscataquis and Washington counties in Maine with the information and access to resources they need to be healthy, engaged and supported in their communities.
To be the most accessible and convenient support system for older adults, caregivers, and adults with disabilities in Penobscot, Piscataquis, Hancock and Washington counties.
Eastern Area Agency on Aging is an organization that provides a welcoming environment for everyone in the community regardless of their race, gender, ethnic identity, sexual orientation, ability, age, economic status or faith. We are committed to continually examining the effectiveness of our policies, structures, and environments to ensure that we live up to this vision for our employees, volunteers, and community members. In reflecting honestly on where we have been and agreeing with humility that we can’t stay where we are, we can then readily accept the challenge to find a path where more can walk together.
Eastern Area Agency on Aging is dedicated to preserving the special bond between older adults and their pets by providing pre-packaged standardized bags of pet food and basic pet care supplies to low-income older adults on a monthly basis through our Furry Friends Food Bank (FFFB)
