The outbreak of COVID-19 in Maine makes this a very difficult time for RCAM as an agency dedicated to providing assistance to our most vulnerable and at-risk residents in the 14 towns we serve. We’ve made a decision that to protect the safety of our staff and the public, effective immediately, all RCAM staff will be working from home remotely until at least Wednesday, April 1.
IF YOU NEED RCAM SERVICES, please call 207-524-5095 and leave a detailed message using the appropriate extension number related to your need. Staff will be retrieving messages multiple times daily and will respond as quickly as possible. We care deeply about the people we serve and are taking this unusual step to ensure the health and safety of all of us while we protect our capacity to continue to provide basic needs to our clients. Please stay safe and take precautions to keep yourself and your loved ones healthy during this health crisis.
RCAM is partnering to spread the word about the importance of getting a complete 2020 Census Count. The 2020 Census is underway and ready for America to respond as the first invitations begin to arrive at the nation’s estimated 140 million households today, March 12, through March 20. For the first time, nearly everyone will be invited to respond online, by phone, or by mail.
A sample of the 2020 Census questionnaire is available on 2020census.gov along with more information about when most people will receive their invitations in the mail. The invitation mailings are addressed to “Resident” at the household address and do not include an individual’s name.
Along with the invitations, people can expect to find an overview of the census, a description of language assistance in English plus an additional 12 languages, and a census ID number linked to their address. Households in areas of the country that are less likely to respond via the internet will also receive a paper questionnaire in their first mailing, along with information on how to respond online.
