Arthur B. Huot House
“It’s the day by day acts of kindness that change the world”
The Arthur B. Huot House provides 10 efficiency apartments for Veterans who are homeless. The program, which is the only co-ed Veterans Transitional Living Program in Maine, provides Veterans with stable housing and additional services to help them transition back into the community and All the Way Home™.
Named in honor of the late U.S. Navy Veteran Arthur “Skip” Huot, the program is operated in partnership with the U.S. Department of Veteran's Affairs, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and Maine State Housing. Arthur B. Huot believed that “It’s the day by day acts of kindness that changes the world” and that we should help our Veterans as a community.
“This place probably saved my life.”— Steven, former Huot House resident
Volunteers of America embraces Mr. Huot’s idea and works closely with our partners, local Veterans' services, the Veterans Administration, and other community agencies to provide a continuum of services to meet the needs of Veterans.
Our evidence-based programming includes:
- case management plans that target a variety of needs;
- nutrition guidance as needed;
- community re-integration assistance;
- tailored Individual Service Support Plans;
- living skills development;
- resume and job skills training; and
- Career development.
“They help coordinate my care and are always there to help. I still address my past every day… but it is getting better. I have learned a lot about myself and can see hope for the future." — Joe, former Huot House resident
