The program provides physical, occupational, speech and language therapies for children from birth to age 5. The Frances Hollis Brain Foundation is a charitable family foundation whose mission is to support non-profit organizations and projects that alleviate human suffering and improve the human condition.
“The Foundation’s particular focus is to assist organizations which advocate for and serve low-income, disadvantaged, and vulnerable communities, and early childhood care and education is a key priority. Easter Seals Maine provides invaluable services to the community in this area, and our Foundation appreciates the opportunity to support its work with some funding," said John Watson of the Frances Hollis Brain Foundation.
Frances and David Brain established the Foundation in 1993 as a tangible expression of their values. They believe that those who are blessed with resources have a responsibility to share them with those who are less fortunate. Through the Foundation, they seek with their family to address their social concerns and to encourage future generations of the family to participate in the charitable work of the Foundation.
