Address:

157 Water Street Augusta ME 04330 USA

Mission:

To promote and encourage public interest and support of feeding the homeless and hungry by maintaining a soup kitchen where food can be prepared and served to the hungry, to maintain shelters that provide temporary housing accomodations for the homeless and provide affordable alternative housing and to serve veterans in need.

Programs:

Bolm housing - bolm offers temporary and permanent housing in preparing clients for a stable and grounded life within the community. By offering clean, safe, affordable housing choices to clients, bolm can further facilitate their transition from homelessness to the local community and break what is often a cycle in life of both poverty and intermittent homelessness.

shelter - started in 1986, the homeless shelter offers a warm, welcoming, and safe facility to those needing shelter. Originally having only 10 beds, the shelter now offers 20 beds, and 10 overflow beds each night to help those who are homeless. Currently we see a mix of families, couples, single parents with children, and singles.

community support - the center for life skills is a key component in a guest's transition from homelessness to stability in the community. Started in 2005 with a focus on vocational job skills, it has evolved to a multifaceted training and educational source for our guests. The facility is set up to accommodate classroom training, small group sessions or individual internet use for job searches, housing searches, or access to other community services related to the transition from homelessness to stability.

soup kitchen - provides noontime meals to the hungry, case management and resource center. Provides counseling and other services to the homeless. The soup kitchen is more of a "full meal" kitchen in that it provides a complete, hot meal monday through saturday throughout the year. The soup kitchen has served over 36,000 meals in the last 12 months, and offers a small, but welcoming space to anyone seeking a hot meal, no questions asked. One paid staff person oversees the kitchen with the help of hundreds of volunteers. Over 5,000 hours are volunteered each year helping with donation pickups, preparation, serving and cleaning.
