Giving Tuesday logo

 #GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses, and communities in countries around the world. Millions of people have come together to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live. This year, we are joining this movement to help our Adoption & Counseling programs build an inventory of sensory-rich items as we build a program of training for parents and children in Central Maine and beyond. Our Adoption Program Director, Lindsay Bragdon, and Clinical Director, Deb Levenseller, are the only two practitioners in the state of Maine for Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI®). TBRI® is an attachment-based, trauma-informed intervention that is designed to meet the complex needs of vulnerable children.
