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, Maine.
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 inspiration and the tools they need to succeed.


The purposes of this organization shall be to provide a home for the reception and support of needy boys and girls who are in need of a home and a helping hand, to maintain and operate a school for them and to attend to the physical, industrial, moral and spiritual development of those who shall be placed in its care; its spirit to be evangelical without being sectarian.



We love sharing our mission and happenings with the local community. Check out this article in "Central Maine" covering GSLC's remote learning initiative.
