SEARCH: Seek Elderly Alone, Renew Courage & Hope

For seniors, especially those on a limited income, being able to live at home can be both a blessing and a curse.

SEARCH connects isolated seniors with community volunteers in Androscoggin, Kennebec, and Sagadahoc Counties, and in Brunswick & Harpswell. We began new outreach into parts of Lincoln County in the fall of 2015 and we have expanded our outreach again into parts of Franklin County in January 2017, as funding allows. Our volunteers bring skills, enthusiasm, and companionship to their lives, while assisting with a variety of daily tasks:
