Working together for each other
• In support of an essential ongoing need of young families, LCOC is facilitating a series of planning meetings with parents of young children to help them establish a Childcare Co-operative. At this point, the location being considered for the Co-op is at the Lubec School. The co-operative will be coordinated, managed and paid for by parent members. LCOC and the Lubec Elementary School are currently working on a joint contract with the parent group to assist their efforts to make childcare available to working families in our community.
• LCOC is currently working with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension Senior Companion Program. We have begun meetings with a group of elders in anticipation that LCOC will serve the program as a volunteer station in the Lubec area.
