In the County, it's true, that people care about people more than anywhere else. I've lived here and I've lived other places. I know this to be a fact. Even with that said, sometimes people can fall through the cracks of our social support system. Maine Hope Center learned about a family of five who are homeless. The family in need have ties to the community and thought they could move back to Presque Isle. The father was just diagnosed with cancer and they would like to move back to the state they were in previously to seek care. Upon careful consideration of all factors and from different angles, this seems like the best way to fill this need. We are trying to raise funds for this family to return to Rhode Island and get set up with a place. Any additional funding raised will go toward medical treatment for the cancer. We will be following this family every step of the way and will provide donors with updates. We also maintain full financial transperency so that donors can be sure that every bit of their donation gets to it's intended purpose, down to the very last penny! Maine Hope Center is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charity registered with the IRS. We are a faith based charity, dedicated to filling gaps that exist in Northern Maine for access to care and contributing to a positive quality of life for Aroostook County residents.
