Who We Are

At Good Will-Hinckley, we believe that anyone can be successful no matter the challenges they face. We also know that no one can do it alone. It takes a family and a whole lot of love.

For more than 130 years, GWH has been that family to children and young adults throughout Maine, providing everything from housing and education to dynamic programming and clinical services from our beautiful campus in Fairfield.

Founded by George Walter Hinckley in 1889, GWH is staffed by caring professionals from both the clinical and educational worlds. We are committed to giving children and young adults the inspiration and tools they need to succeed.

Our Mission

Good Will-Hinckley’s mission is to provide a home, educational opportunities and a supportive environment to youth, families, and communities we serve that are in need of a helping hand.
