Town of Windham, ME

Windham is a vibrant, growing community of 18,000 located 10 miles northwest of Portland. Windham is considered the gateway to the Sebago Lakes Region, with a unique mixture of recreational areas, shopping, dining, and services.

Spearheaded by the late Human Services Advisory Committee member, Deb McAfee, the town enrolled in AARP’s Network of Age-Friendly Communities in January 2019. A committee formed and completed a public survey in October 2019. The committee is currently working to develop an action plan to make Windham a great place to live for people of all ages.


Age Friendly Windham is dedicated to maintaining the independence of our town’s older residents and helping them thrive while aging at home. Our mission is to:

  • Partner with local and regional organizations and volunteer groups to increase services and programs that make it possible for residents of all ages and abilities to live and thrive in Windham.
  • Provide activities geared toward keeping people healthy, active, and engaged in our community.
  • Advise the Windham Town Council about infrastructure and policy that will make it easier and safer for Windham residents to live in our community.
