Peaks Assisted Living
Here is a message from C. J. Hoppin:
To All Peaks Islanders: As we conclude a difficult year and plan ahead, we wanted to be sure you were aware of our ongoing efforts to find potential developers for an assisted living facility on Peaks. The Survey we concluded with help from the Island Institute in 2019 revealed considerable interest and support for Peaks Assisted Living. As a reminder, the Survey, which is attached, reported a total of 161 people (35% of the 462 Survey respondents) indicated that they would be interested in an assisted living facility on the Island in the near or distant future. You can see the report here: http://bit.ly/PeaksAssistedLivingSurvey. Please feel free to share this survey with any contacts you might have in the assisted living industry. Thanks from the Peaks Assisted Living Team.

Peaks Island Health Center
The mission of the Peaks Island Health Center is “to facilitate and support the delivery
of health services on Peaks Island for island residents and visitors.” It’s available to all
patients who choose its services providing preventive and ongoing medical care,
especially for those most at risk: elders, people with disabilities and children. It is an
IRS non-profit, 501 c 3 organization whose board provides the clinic facility and
Cnancial and practical support for an independently practicing provider, Maine Medical
Partners Family Medicine. The support takes multiple forms including contracting with
the provider for use of the facility, providing public information and marketing services
to maximize awareness and use of the health center, fundraising for special capital and
project needs and sponsoring health education events throughout the year.
Peaks Island Historical Society
The Society was established in the spring of 2019 by a group of like-minded people who felt that more could and should be done to preserve the island’s past. Why, you may ask? A significant portion of the year-round population is constantly changing – many newcomers want to experience island life but, for a variety of reasons, do not stay long. The ever-shrinking pool of long-time islanders are concerned that the community’s rich legacy will be lost forever if more is not done to preserve it. The Society is staffed by community volunteers and has been designated a 501(c )3 organization by the Internal Revenue Service.
