FEEDBACK FROM VOLUNTEERS, DONORS AND RECIPIENTS
UMC is an integral part of the Midcoast Maine non-profit network of services. We are stronger and more able to help the people who need it the most because of UMC.
UMC carefully evaluates local non-profits through a rigorous grant cycle, and year after year have helped our volunteer clinic expand to serve the growing number of Mainers in need of care.
