Each month, here at Electricity Maine we feature one of our Core non-profit partners or group of partners who share a common goal or objective.
In April we are featuring our three partners that focus their efforts on providing resources for, and addressing the needs of, Maine’s homeless youth and teens. These non-profits include:
- New Beginnings (Androscoggin, Kennebec, and Franklin counties)
- Preble Street (Cumberland county)
- The Shaw House (Penobscot county)
Please take a moment to review their great work and how they make a difference to our youth people. We are proud to partner with these organizations and we hope you’ll consider supporting their work.
About: New Beginnings has served runaway and homeless youth and Maine families in crisis for more than 30 years. Their complete continuum of services provides an essential “safety net” for over 750 youth each year who don’t have stable family support and are at risk of homelessness.
For individuals at risk of homelessness who need help (especially youth shelter, mediating family conflict, a teen respite stay, or referrals for resources) call them 24 hours a day at 207-794-4070
To receive regular updates sign up to receive their newsletter. Interested folks can subscribe to our newsletter through our website or Facebook page.
