New Hope Midcoast Strategic Plan

Building a Community of Hope

Here at New Hope Midcoast, we have been working with survivors of domestic abuse for more than 40 years. What began as a grassroots effort has become an organization known throughout the state for its caring and deep understanding of the causes and impacts of domestic abuse in our community.

In 2023, our Board of Directors and staff took time and care to undergo a holistic strategic planning process to understand and better respond to the needs of the communities we serve in Sagadahoc, Lincoln, Knox and Waldo counties and to chart a path forward. For several months, the board and staff, guided by a consultant, surveyed and engaged in one-on-one conversations with clients, community leaders and partners, including law enforcement, lawyers, mental health providers and educators. We discussed how the organization should grow to better serve victim-survivors of domestic abuse and the communities where we live and work.

The strategic plan that emerged is one that will strengthen the network of community organizations and individuals who support survivors and work to end domestic violence. It will help destigmatize the issue and plant more seeds to prevent abuse before it begins. It also serves as a guide for how to broaden and enhance the ways survivors and their families get the help and support they need. It will build a community of trust and hope right here in Midcoast Maine.

We are grateful for our staff, partners, and the many victim-survivors who helped us think deeply about how we’ll grow and expand to serve those impacted by domestic abuse. We look forward to building a community of trust and hope right here in Midcoast Maine.

Strategic Priorities

We are confident these steps will help to decrease domestic abuse in our communities, put victim-survivors on a self-made path, and fully realize our mission and vision for Midcoast Maine.
