The Charlotte White Center (CWC) is in the process of restructuring our work force to preserve our ability to provide high quality services to our clients and families, to align ourselves with the best opportunities in gaining referrals, and to strengthen our direct care staffing, all in an effort to eliminate our deficit spending. 

The restructuring will allow for the closing of our Bangor office on July 1st without impacting any of the services we provide to our current and future clients and families.
After 38+ years in operation, CWC will continue to provide high quality community health and social services for adults, children and families affected by cognitive or developmental disabilities, behavioral health challenges, domestic violence, or acquired brain injuries. 
For more information, please call us at (207) 564-2464.

Community Champion Awardee: Dr. Lesley M. Fernow, MD, FACP

A Community Champion works hard and well to start and/or support an initiative or intervention, to bring a program or idea to reality, or to otherwise improve the quality of life of a particular group or the community as a whole. 

Dr. Fernow was selected as our first Community Champion awardee as she is a generous and tireless community leader and advocate for the underserved.  She has the insight and vision to conceive the projects and activities aimed at improving life for everyone in the community, as well as the heart and determination to plunge in and make them work at every level.  Whether it's doctoring frail, older adults in their homes, measuring windows in local homes for the Window Dressers heat retention project, writing grants for the Maine Highlands Senior Center, chairing the Falls Reduction committee for the Piscataquis Thriving in Place Collaborative, or convening a QiGong class at Center Theatre, Dr. Fernow is completely present and devoted to the cause.  Dr. Fernow has high expectations, holding others accountable for their actions - or inaction - and she never relaxes the standard for herself.  Her love for humanity and robust sense of humor seem to fuel her constant concern for, and commitment to, the public good.  We are proud to honor Dr. Lesley M. Fernow, MD, FACP!
