Commitment to our Communities
FHC has close ties with the rural towns of Bowdoin and Bowdoinham, Maine where the company headquarters and production facilities are located. Our Community Action Team (CAT) leads fundraising activities or contributes directly to benefit local agencies and organizations including the two local grade schools, Fire Departments, local EMS, Boy Scouts of America, MS Society, St. Jude's, the Dempsey Challenge, the Trek Across Maine, the Riverview Foundation, Cathance River Education Alliance (CREA), and many other organizations and individuals who have a demonstrated need for support. We also actively support United Way and the American Red Cross.
FHC also considers our business partners as “community.” Families of our Neuroscience Research and Clinical colleagues, as well as our vendors are encouraged to apply to our Community Education Foundation, a scholarship program that awards grants for each of the fall and spring semesters. Since its inaugural disbursement in the fall of 2010, the CEF has awarded more than 45 scholarships totaling $48,000. To apply for a scholarship, please click the application link below.
FHC provides direct services to the communities by sharing our full-service child day care and fitness centers with the local communities, and provides financial assistance to needy community members to help offset the cost of tuition/memberships.
