We provide more than just a bed and a meal for our guests. Guests are paired up with one of our in-house case managers to create an action plan to obtain stable housing and prevent homelessness in the future. The action plan establishes goals in twelve areas of the guests’ lives. These twelve areas are: Housing, Financial Stability, Education, Family & Children, Transportation, Safety Planning, Social, Employment, Legal, Mental Health, DV Support, and Substance Abuse.

What do the donations help fund?

The shelter is funded by 60% donations that come from generous people like you. These donations add to our general fund, which allows us to operate in an effort to end homelessness one person, one family, and one child at a time.

All links lead to a secure off-site page for making a donation.  Aside from providing a link, How to Help in Maine does not participate in the transaction in any way.  Most of the charities are 501(c)(3) and therefore tax deductible
