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, Oxford, 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.
The Shaw House

Wish List: Key items they need right now are: New socks and underwear, towels, bedding, hygiene products and gift cards for local stores.
Events: Current projects and activities at Shaw House include plans to expand our Day Drop-in Program space allowing us to provide more opportunities for homeless youth, and our Pin Project with University of Maine students to raise money to purchase musical instruments for our Drop-in Program.
You can find information on both these projects by visiting our Day Program Expansion Google One site, where one dollar can make a difference.
