Admitting that you need help caring for a child is difficult.
Arranging for that care can seem overwhelming.
Because we know that it can be difficult to make the trip to Shriners Children's in Springfield or Boston, MA., the Anah Shriners arrange for LOCAL and NO COST Pre-Screening Clinics every spring here in Northern Maine.

The professionals at Shriners Children's believe in family-centered care. The child and family are at the heart of the medical team. Every treatment chosen, every decision made is geared toward giving a child the skills and abilities to live a healthy, productive life.
