Maine State System
The Department of Health and Human Services is in the process of re-organizing.
Names of departments, bureaus, and offices are changing.
Same of their functions may be changing, too.
We will make sure to update all of the links on these pages.
After all the function and name changes have occurred,
we will update the information on these pages.
Thank you for your patience!!
by state agencies are usually organized by funding sources rather than
by consumers' needs. To get the services that you, a family member
or a client needs, you may have to talk to many different departments
or bureaus within the state system. To complicate matters, some
of the program names can be very similar, but they may provide different
services. Sometimes departments provide services to you directly;
more often they contract to community-based providers.
In this document we have
listed the state agencies that consumers with disabilities are likely
to contact. The information for each department or office includes
- a brief description of
the department or office;
- the people they serve;
- the names of the programs
or offices they administer;
- the types of programs and
services that they provide or pay for; and
- contact Information.
This is meant to be a guide
to help you find the state office or offices that you need. We have not
included all the functions of all the departments - just the services
that might be accessed by persons with disabilities. Click on the "Directory
of Services" to start.
