Our Story

MCHPP served its first meal in 1983 out of the basement of a local church. Over the next thirty-five plus years, the support of MCHPP grew and the client base continued to increase. In February of 1995 we received our 501(c)(3) status, and in 2003 we built our first facility. Over the years we have added programs and increased service hours to continue meeting the growing need we have seen in the community. We now offer eight different programs out of our building in Brunswick, some of which have satellite locations throughout the mid coast region.
