I used to live in Lebanon, Maine quite some years ago (I'm a Massachusetts raised person)
From the way I experienced Maine well.... I have a lot of people up that area whom I still know.
I can say this for sure.
Social Services doesn't do jack in that specific county anyways as far as for the welfare of children anyways.
At one point someone who i went to high school with had called me up crying & asking for money for food because she and her boyfriend were smoking crack & not having food in the fridge for her son.
I reported it to Social Services.
The worker whom I was making the report with I explained how there was no food in the house & the mother and father are both going on crack binges.
The Social Services worker replied with
"So what's the problem?"
I'm not sure if there is anything you can do in this specific situation other than be a good friend. But don't get taken advantage of ya know? Be Best to thyself.
