The Landing Place

Located in the heart of downtown Rockland, The Landing Place is our comprehensive youth program supporting highly resilient and often marginalized youth living in Midcoast Maine. Using trauma-informed, strength-based, and restorative practices, The Landing Place aims to break cycles of poverty by compassionately supporting local youth who are at high-risk of experiencing different types of adversity, such as unstable housing, food insecurity, insufficient access to resources and supplies, personal conflicts, and other barriers that make it difficult for youth to realize personal aspirations.
