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.
Charlotte White Center, CWC, Children's Case ManagementChildren's Targeted Case Management (TCM) serves case children with intellectual or developmental disabilities, mental health disability, autism, pervasive developmental disorder, or in mental health crisis. We connect children and their families with resources and skills to improve quality of life by using the following strength-based approach:
  • Natural supports: The child/adolescent and family chooses their support team
  • Customized planning for discovering and using skills and available resources
  • Ongoing support is provided as needed

 

Referral Process

We encourage referrals from individuals, family members, medical community, case managers, DHHS, service providers, schools and local hospitals.

Once referrals are received, a CWC staff member schedules an appointment for the initial intake. The intake procedure involves gathering all the data necessary to determine eligibility, such as previous evaluations and test results.

At present our service network extends to Piscataquis, Penobscot, Hancock, Franklin, Somerset, and Waldo Counties.
