New Mainers have been making up an essential part of our vibrant communities for decades. The process of settling into a new place can be challenging, especially for those who come from different backgrounds and cultures. ProsperityME is vital in helping individuals and families from cash-based societies build successful, rewarding lives in their new homeland.
