Yarmouth Cares About Neighbors (YCAN) is an independent, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) all-volunteer organization. We work to strengthen the Yarmouth, Maine community and meet community needs by connecting available resources with the people who need them.
The Yarmouth Community Garden’s mission is to create an organic garden for Yarmouth citizens that offers plots for renters; produces fresh vegetables and flowers for distribution to area residents and seniors in need; and provides a gardening experience that benefits all of Yarmouth through education, mentoring, and volunteer participation.
Yarmouth Community Coronavirus Task Force
The Yarmouth Coronavirus Community Task Force is a grassroots organization. We work in collaboration with the Town of Yarmouth and Cumberland County service organizations to assist with the disruptions and uncertainties caused by the Coronavirus epidemic. We stand together to help the increasing number of people who may experience food shortages, social isolation, medical and transportation needs in the wake of this coronavirus epidemic. We are part of a larger community strategy that has been initiated by our Town Council, our Town Manager, YCS, EMS, Police, Fire, and all public servants. It is our goal that we participate in efforts to keep core services open, provide residents with safe ways to meet their needs, and work together to mitigate the epidemic and maintain our personal/community health.
