Bangor Area Homeless Shelter
Last updated on June 6, 2013

It is the mission of the Bangor Area Homeless Shelter to support and strengthen the community by providing emergency shelter and supportive services to people who are homeless, or at risk and to advocate for collaborative, locally driven solutions to end homelessness.

Description:
BAHS is a facility open 365 days a year, providing both overnight shelter as well as a Day Program. We serve both homeless adults and other, very low income members of our community. Our primary purpose is to offer a form of crisis stabilization and then develop a support plan to enable people to move beyond crisis and homelessness. We are emphatically collaborative in our efforts.

History:
The Shelter opened Christmas Eve as a 10-bed, overnight only, volunteer managed facility. We have evolved to a 365 days/yr facility with 32 beds and a paid staff of 17, serving a population with a range of behavioral health issues as well as temporary problems connected with being homeless.
