Our mission is simple and focused: Provide the necessities to at-risk kids in Maine. The MainStreet Foundation awards grants for projects that impact the essentials, like food, security, shelter and education. We strive to positively impact the lives of the most vulnerable youth so they may have a supportive and safe environment.
The $25K for Kids award means that we will be able to more than triple the number of meals we can provide, as well as helping up to 65 youth transition to permanent housing and stability in ways we couldn't before. We are grateful to the MainStreet Foundation for partnering with us to provide the opportunity to improve and expand the existing services and-with input from the youth themselves-try new strategies to improve the health and wellbeing of the youth we serve.
