Our Mission

New Directions’ mission is to provide a family run, statewide organization utilizing personal connections, virtual and electronic systems in order to provide effective support to families with a member who has a special health care need and/or a disability.

How will we fulfill our mission?

We want to make available on our website the best information we can to help families address the issues they are confronting, to support and receive support from other families and connect with family leaders from around Maine and the Nation.  These connections will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  Families can contact New Directions via our web site and also via our Facebook page to get help with specific issues.
