2013 Hope House Winter Wishlist

By Megan Burpee

Help give the gift of comfort!
The Hope House is a 64 bed emergency homeless shelter, the 2nd largest in the state of Maine. It offers an integrated medical model of care: medical care, psychiatric care, and case management services. The shelter provides three meals a day and is asking for some community support around the holiday season.

Students and staff have setup a drop box near the entrance and fliers around the school with items the shelter is in desperate need of. Please consider donating!
