RUMFORD -- Rumford Group Homes, Inc. recently received a grant in the amount of $2,500 from the Bangor Savings Bank Foundation to support the Rumford Family Center, a 12-bed emergency shelter for homeless individuals and families.
The shelter serves four to five homeless families at a time who are experiencing a temporary crisis. The Rumford Family Center operates on the Housing First model and aims move families into permanent housing as quickly as possible and continue to work with them once they are stably housed.
Alan J. Monier, executive director of Rumford Group Homes, Inc., states “We are very thankful for the support of the Bangor Savings Bank Foundation and are happy that they chose to partner with us to help at-risk families in our community. With this support, we will continue our mission to help homeless families access affordable housing and work to become self-sufficient.”
“This grant award from our foundation to Rumford Group Homes signifies our commitment to improving the quality of life in the communities we serve. This commitment is shared by Rumford Group Homes as they work to help homeless families in western Maine,” states Greg Gagne, vice president and branch manager for Bangor Savings Bank.
