Welcome to Freeport, Maine’s charming southern coastal region, renowned for its outlet stores, boutiques, and scenic beauty. Just a short 20-minute drive north of Portland, this bustling town offers a shopper’s paradise and a vibrant sense of community.
Nestled amidst the hustle and bustle of stores and culinary delights, lies Freeport Community Services (FCS). This three-house complex serves as a beacon of hope and assistance for the local community. What started as a humble effort by a group of caring Freeport residents who recognized the needs of their neighbors for necessities such as clothing, food, and heating fuel, has blossomed into a heartwarming institution that now offers a variety of services to meet the needs of the whole community.
Behind the doors of FCS, you’ll discover a world of compassion and support. It houses a nonprofit thrift store where every purchase directly contributes to the organization. Inside, you’ll also find a welcoming community center; a place to warm up and enjoy a meal or just forge new friendships. And that’s not all – FCS hosts a food pantry and several food programs catering to children, individuals, families, and older Mainers, providing vital sustenance for anyone in need. Their essential services extend to a transportation program and a medical equipment lending service, making a meaningful impact on the lives of countless individuals.
