A message during Covid19 At the heart of Mission at the Eastward’s is the desire to 'create safe housing, enrich the lives of youth, and build resiliency in our communities.’ One of our core values is to “love our neighbor” through our outreach and care. Even in these anxiety-filled and tenuous time, this remains at the center of who we are and of what we do. To this extend, we want our clients, volunteers, donors, supporters and staff to know we stand beside them in promoting health, safety and wellness for all people while some are experiencing anxiety and isolation during the Covid19 health crisis. In the interest of doing what is right and compassionate, our staff will be working from home for the foreseeable future to ensure their health and safety as well. If you contact us at MATE, we will try and return your emails and calls in a timely manner, but we do ask for your patience as we try to be safe for ourselves and our neighbors. We are holding you, our country, and the world in our thoughts and prayers! We are also suspending any activities that has been scheduled up to Easter at this point in time. We are all well, but we want to make sure that those who we serve also stay in good health. We are all in this together. Please check our Facebook page or website for updates as time progress.
With the Covid19 crisis, we also know that many people and organizations have financial worries. MATE is also in that position and we would deeply appreciate any gifts or contributions that could be made this spring to help us continue to impact lives in positive ways with our work up at MATE. You can donate online by going to our website missionattheeastward.org and click on the “Donate” button or you can mail a check to Mission at the Eastward PO Box 206 Farmington, Maine 04938. Thank you for caring and for partnering with MATE at this stressful time. Your gifts will make a difference!
