Your Giving Can Help Support M. A. T. E.

Founded as a cooperative parish to establish Presbyterian churches in Maine in 1953, Mission at the Eastward has been a presence in western Maine for over 60 years. In 2020 MATE completed the process of incorporating as an independent 501c3 charitable organization in order to expand its ministries. MATE remains closely related to the PCUSA and its offices are in the Fairbanks Union PCUSA Church in Farmington, Maine.


For over 35 years, Camp Hill Presbyterian Church has sent an annual mission team to work with the MATE Housing Ministry. We've provided more than 49,000 hours of volunteer labor over the years to repair and build homes for the rural poor in the western Maine mountains.
