Hope House Shelter
The Hope House Shelter is a 64 bed emergency homeless shelter licensed by MSHA and the Office of Substance Abuse, and is the 2nd largest shelter in the state of Maine. In addition to housing and on-site health care services, 3 meals per day are provided with assistance from various community groups. Hope House is the community safety net in Bangor, managing the city of Bangor’s overflow of homeless persons from other shelters.
Hope House Transitional Housing
Encouraging healthy living, the Hope House Transitional Housing helps people move toward self-sufficiency and successful independent living. Each tenant is given the chance to develop and work on personal, independent living goals in a positive, safe and supportive environment. Our Transitional Housing features 48 private rooms and access to on-site laundry, a community kitchenette, shared common rooms, and more. We offer both wrap around services and integrated health care through the Hope House Health Center to help tenants develop stability as well as prepare them for independent housing. Transitional Housing is short-term, up to 24 months, and works to help tenants overcome barriers to successful, permanent housing in the community.
