Touching the mind, body, heart, and spirit of those we serve in Northern New England since 1992
To us, a home is more than just a shelter. Itʼs a foundation stone of life. Thatʼs why Volunteers of America is a leading nonprofit provider of quality affordable housing. Weʼre dedicated to empowering our residents and helping bring together the proven community resources to create safe, comfortable homes. Wherever there are people in America who need homes, weʼll be there, extending a smile and a helping hand.
Behavioral Health Housing
We operate specialized residential treatment facilities and apartments for people with severe mental illness. Our work fosters proven principles of evidence-based treatment plans, normalization, psychosocial rehabilitation, and community integration. A team of trained and caring staff members at each residence helps residents learn to cope with the challenges of everyday living by developing daily living skills, maintaining counseling, and learning how to manage symptoms.
Nearly 154,000 veterans are homeless on any given night and twice as many experience homelessness during a year. Even here in Northern New England hundreds of veterans — hometown heroes who served their country — are being served at food pantries, living in shelters, under bridges, in encampments, or in cars on any given night. Volunteers of America is committed to helping U.S. veterans come All the Way Home™. As part of this bold initiative, we operate residential facilities for homeless veterans in southern Maine.
