With the impending need to move from Vinegar Hill, our team has been working tirelessly to confirm a plan for a new location. It has been a logistical and scheduling challenge the last few weeks to say the least, but our move to our new home is finally happening the week after Labor Day.
With the support of the three towns of Arundel, Kennebunk and Kennebunkport and their encouragement to see us get our own space, COS is pleased to announce our new location at what used to be the old Teen Center on 19 Park Street. With much work and visionary drive from Karen Winton and Chris Osterrieder and support from the Kennebunk Town Manager and Select Board, our dream to have our own home has finally come true. With an incredible construction leadership role from Dave Boyd, the building has been transformed to make our new headquarters a beautiful place to serve the needs of our neighbors in the community.
COS is humbled to have such a strong partnership with the three General Assistance Officers of all three towns and we look forward to being able to serve more now that we have our own home. COS is grateful to have been a part of this community for the last 30 years and we look forward to continuing to meet the food, fuel and specific needs challenges of our neighbors. This is a pic of the space with work in progress on some renovations. We will be sharing more detailed information very soon so that our neighbors and volunteers will know what to expect in the coming days.
