Adaptive Services Auction

The YMCA of Southern Maine’s Adaptive Services program helps hundreds of Mainers faced with illness and injury maintain independence, grow stronger, and live full lives. This unique program is offered at no cost to participants, ensuring that anyone faced with a life-changing illness or injury can get the specialized, nurturing support they need to heal.

To sustain this vital community program, we rely on the fundraising success of our annual auction. This year, instead of using our resources to host a formal, one night event, we are getting the highest value for our donated items by auctioning them off in our lobbies. Look for great items from art to services and everything in between for you and your loved ones.

ABOUT ADAPTIVE SERVICES

The Y’s Adaptive Services program helps hundreds of Mainers faced with illness and injury maintain independence, grow stronger, and live full lives. Our unique program is offered at no cost to participants. This year, we’re excited to expand Adaptive Services to all four of our branches, ensuring that our neighbors throughout Southern Maine can get the specialized and nurturing one-on-one support they need to heal from a life-changing illness or injury.

Adaptive Services includes our LIVESTRONG at the YMCA cancer survivorship program. By focusing on the whole person and not the disease, LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is helping people move beyond cancer in spirit, mind, and body. 

We are dedicated to ensuring everyone, regardless of ability to pay, is able to benefit from these programs. The success of the auction helps sustain these vital community programs.
