Home Runs For Good!

YCSP has been selected as the organization for the month of July! For each home run the Redsox hit out of Fenway this month, SIS Bank will donate $50! We just found out the Redsox hit 30 homers in July, that comes out to $1,500 from SIS!

Our Purpose

Located in Alfred, Maine, with programs throughout Southern Maine, the York County Shelter Programs was founded on the belief that everyone – regardless of income level, housing needs, mental or physical health issues, struggles with addiction, and other challenges associated with poverty and homelessness – deserves to be treated with respect and dignity.  

We are committed to remaining innovative in how we deliver services to those in need. We strive to be an efficient, effective, and, most importantly, a people first organization. We provide a wide range of services that far exceed emergency shelter services alone. We are eager to share the work we are doing to end homelessness and hunger.
