Mission Statement


We are committed to ending homelessness and assisting people to reach their fullest potential by providing access to various levels of housing, personal growth opportunities and community resources. We embrace diversity and economic security for all.


Starting Monday, June 20th!!

We are very happy to partner with Maine SNAP-Ed and the Maine Cooperative Extension 4-H programs for our annual Free Summer Meals Program. 1 in 4 Maine children are food insecure. When the school year ends, this percentage increases and some Maine families struggle with not having enough food. Summer Meals Programs such as this aim to provide some relief for those children and the families that face these harsh realities. For more information regarding this wonderful program or how you can get involved, please email Megan Dyer


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.
