Mission Statement

"The purposes of this organization shall be to provide a home for the reception and support of needy boys and girls who are in need of a home and a helping hand, to maintain and operate a school for them and to attend to the physical, industrial, moral and spiritual development of those who shall be placed in its care; its spirit to be evangelical without being sectarian."

Sports & Recreation

Sports, recreation, and games offer year-round opportunities to build social skills and have fun. Youth may take part as individuals or as team members. Basketball, soccer, softball, and baseball are offered as intramural and league sports.

Good Will-Hinckley (GWH) teams compete in State and National Group Home Olympics every year. These events allow youth to travel, form bonds, and gain leadership skills. Other recreational activities include:

- cross-country skiing and ice-skating
- tennis and ping-pong
- biking and hiking
- swimming, canoeing, and fishing
- traditional campus competitions

Since 1889, our mission remains to provide a home and helping hand for young people and families. The organization has helped more than 6,000 youth from Maine and other states. Today, Good Will-Hinckley is home to youth facing complex academic, social, behavioral and emotional challenges. Before going to Good Will, they may have lacked sufficient support at home and/or in school. The 2,450 acre campus serves as many as 300 youth per year, ages 11 through 21. Good Will offers complete residential, educational, and counseling services. The campus also has a museum, library, organic farm, Alfond Recreation Center, and several athletic fields.
