Helping Bring Veterans All The Way Home™
At VOA Northern New England, we have made it a focus to help veterans. Assessing the needs in our community, VOA has recognized the number of veterans and their families who have faced homelessness and hard times.
Volunteers of America programs
Through our veterans’ programs and our partnerships with other veteran-serving organizations across Maine, Volunteers of America connects veterans and their families with services and assistance to meet each individual’s specific needs. If you need immediate assistance, please call Brian Bouthot at 207-229-8306.
All the Way Home™ integrates case management, housing, and transition services to help homeless veterans in major life areas — employment, mental health, substance abuse, life skills training, and more — as they rebuild their lives and come “all the way home” into everyday society.

- Outreach to veterans living in shelters and on the streets
- Safe, supportive housing
- Transition services
- Career counseling to help veterans ready themselves for employment
- Access to health, behavioral and substance abuse services
