Shelter Resources in Maine

Purpose: A resource for those dealing with homelessness in Maine.




The homeless are not very visible. They couch-surf with friends and relatives, stay in shelters when there is room, sleep in cars, in other peoples campers, or in a tent. They go to great lengths to look just like everybody else. The shelters are turning away families every day, because although the need is expanding, the resources are not. There is no money available to create new shelters, but here is something that we can do right now, with the resources that we already have. We can do it!
