Maine’s Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) announced today that Community Support programs are approved for reopening  – and Pine Tree Society is ready.

“Our team is thrilled to welcome clients back to its Community Support programs in Auburn and Scarborough,” said Shelley Zielinski, director of Pine Tree Society’s Adult Support Services.  “We will be re-opening on Monday, February 8 for in-person group programming following the guidance of the CDC.”

Pine Tree Society’s Community Support team has been proactive and responsive to the needs of its clients during this challenging time since the start of the pandemic.

“When it was clear we weren’t going to be able to offer group programming, we evolved to small group and focused on getting out clients outdoors,” said Zielinski.  “When numbers continued to increase, we launched one-on-one and remote programming to keep our clients connected, engaged and active during a particularly challenging time for people with disabilities.”

Connected, engaged and active are the words around which the program is built. Learn more about Pine Tree Society’s Community Support. Pine Tree Society offers two program locations in Auburn and Scarborough.  The modern, bright spaces are designed to promote social connectedness and meaningful participation.  The Auburn location just underwent a major renovation as seen in the video below.

Pine Tree Society’s Community Support is currently accepting new clients at its Scarborough and Auburn locations.  Spaces are limited.  Contact Shelley Zielinski at (207) 386-5927 or for more information.
