Maine needs workers and our communities need younger people. Safe in Maine is fundraising to establish transitional housing.
Transitional housing will help us realize the opportunity to resettle new families today as an investment in Maine’s future. And this housing will benefit generations of Mainers – both new and established – for decades to come.
We’re raising money to establish a transitional housing community for new Mainers.
Transitional housing is secure housing used short-term (average 12 months). It is designed to provide families with stability and support that will allow them to move to permanent housing. Our community features efficient homes (~600 square feet) arranged in pods with community space, recreational fields, walking trails, community gardens, and connections to essential services and systems.
