The General Assistance Office serves the needs of the residents of Kennebunk. We provide resources, information, and need-based support to individuals and families.

General assistance is intended for people who are unable, not unwilling, to provide food, shelter, utilities, fuel, clothing, and certain other essential items for themselves and their families. The program provides specific amounts and types of aid for defined needs during a limited period of time. It is not a continuing "grant-in-aid" welfare program, as our aim is to prevent dependency.

We are a “safety net program” which provides for the immediate aid of persons who are unable to provide the basic necessities for themselves or their families. All recipients must meet the state-mandated requirements to be eligible for assistance and they are responsible for meeting their own basic needs by any means available before applying for general assistance.

Please feel free to contact our office to inquire about eligibility: (207) 604-1342.
