Clifford Winn has been selected to be the new executive director at Coastal Opportunities.

Camden — Clifford B. Winn will be the new executive director for Coastal Opportunities, of Camden. Coastal Opportunities (formerly Coastal Workshop) has been assisting adults with developmental disabilities to become participating members in the social and economic community of Midcoast Maine for more than 40 years. Cliff will succeed Joe Curll, who has served as executive director for the past 36 years, when Joe retires at the end of March.

After graduating from the University of Maine with a bachelor’s degree in English and an interest in teaching and coaching, Winn landed a position as activities daily living counselor at Sebasticook Farms, assisting adults with cognitive and physical disabilities in acquiring skills to live as independently as possible. Winn spent seven years at Sebasticook Farms (now Skills, Inc.), advancing to supervisor of direct care and then to developmental training coordinator, where he was supervisor of a group home.

In November of 1999, Winn left Sebasticook Farms to join Tri-County Mental Health Services as program administrator, and then manager, of the Social Learning Center, a position he has held until joining Coastal Opportunities. Winn has been involved since 1999 with the Maine Association for Community Service Providers and was recently appointed to the Board of Directors. He has served as his agency’s representative for the Lewiston/Auburn Chamber of Commerce.
