An action alert for Maine’s faith communities, March 3, 2023
Starting next week, 52 asylum seeking families will be moving out of hotels and into their new homes at West End II apartments in South Portland, thanks to an Avesta project funded by MaineHousing, Cumberland County, and other grants, and financed by the city. Rents will be covered by some of the $21 million provided by the State Legislature through emergency bill LD3 passed on January 4. Twin and Queen-size beds have been donated to furnish the apartments, but there is an urgent need for donated bed linens. Organizers are calling on Maine’s faith communities to help meet this need.
God is Good!
