CLC YMCA and Spectrum Generations in Damariscotta Form Community Partnership Coastal Center

The Central Lincoln County (CLC) YMCA and Spectrum Generations Coastal Community Center (Damariscotta) today announced they have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding to form a community partnership effective mid-March, 2017. 

Pending final business plan approval by the Spectrum Generations Board, their  Coastal Community Center envisions relocating to the new CLC YMCA building in early 2018, where it will continue to support its mission to promote lifelong learning, health, wellness, nutrition, community engagement and the social well-being of all older and disabled adults. 

Meagan Hamblett, CEO of CLC YMCA, said, “We’re excited about this collaborative opportunity with Spectrum, which could not have been made possible without the upcoming renovation and new construction of our YMCA facility.  Timing is everything because now our architect can make office space adjustments to the facility design to accommodate Spectrum staff.  Both organizations are committed to working together for the greater good, making a positive and healthier impact on our community.”  

Spectrum Generations has been serving central and midcoast Maine’s older adults since 1972 and is a fixture in Lincoln County, providing services to 2200 people, including more than 15,000 Meals on Wheels in the most recent fiscal year. Spectrum Generations also provides caregiver support, education, and respite, Medicare counseling, and offers classes, workshops, social clubs, and weekly lunch-and-learn dining opportunities featuring local speakers focusing on a variety of topics. Their annual Aging in the Right Place Symposium continues to be a source for many in Lincoln County who are retired, nearing retirement, or looking for resources to support an elderly parent or loved one.

Gerard Queally, CEO of Spectrum Generations said, “We always look to collaborate with organizations and individuals and partnering with CLC YMCA makes sense. As with many community based non-profits, we strive to serve the needs of our neighbors and our ability to do that comes from these strong partnerships. Joining forces with the CLC YMCA allows us to share space and resources, opening up many avenues for us to increase the number of seniors we can serve while enhancing programs and service offerings. This is a big win for improving the health culture of our seniors in mid-coast Maine.”

Dennis Anderson, Board Chair, CLC YMCA, added, “Bringing Spectrum Generations on board opens new opportunities for this community, especially for our signature demographic seniors. At a time when social isolation and all its negative side effects are reaching epidemic levels, a partnership like this offers so many new prospects to help overcome these health and quality of life challenges in Lincoln County. We look forward to building upon the incredible work spectrum generations is already doing in our communities."
