Pink Earth

We were searching for the right BIPOC led organization to partner with us to address issues facing older BIPOC Mainers.  When we found Cross CulturalCommunity Services and Regina, Abeir and Deqa, we knew our search was over! These wonderful women are collaborative, smart, strategic, and willing to tackle difficult issues to ensure the needs of BIPOC people are intentionally considered and met. They are trusted sources intheir respective communities,
and with the ECBO community, so are able to get
input from diverse community members to better
understand barriers and craft solutions. They
deliver what they promise and have become
important partners in our work.
