In an effort to better meet the changing needs of Aroostook County and its people, building modifications are underway at ACAP’s 771 Main Street Presque location. 

Supporting the work of ACAP and its comprehensive services, Katahdin Trust recently presented ACAP with a $25,000 check in sponsorship of the new Community Services Suite. The Suite will include private offices for private one-on-one consultations as well as intake and training rooms to ensure confidentiality when needed and better access to the over forty programs and services the agency offers.  

"We are thrilled to support such an important organization in our community, especially as they respond to the increasing demand of these services due to COVID-19," said Krista Putnam, Senior Vice President, Marketing. "Katahdin Trust believes communities that work together thrive together, so we celebrate ACAP and their commitment to the people and the changing needs of The County." 

The facility is being transformed to serve as a one-stop, direct service location to include many vital community resources to assist families and individuals to meet their needs and become more economically self-sufficient. “The modifications will allow for more welcoming and confidential meeting rooms. By housing multiple programs under one roof, we are confident we will be able to provide a more comprehensive service delivery model that will facilitate the navigation and support of individuals and families through critical services to help them succeed,” stated ACAP’s Director of Advancement, Sherry Locke. “We are so fortunate to have the continued support of Katahdin Trust Company. This generous donation demonstrates their dedication to our community.” 

Once modifications have been completed at the 771 Main Street location, ACAP’s comprehensive services will include a Women, Infant and Children (WIC) wing, Hope and Prosperity Resource Center, Home Energy Assistance, Housing and Weatherization, and Workforce Development Programs, as well as administration.
