Preble Street

Portland, Maine



Established as a food pantry and soup kitchen, the organization has transitioned from providing shelter services to adopting a comprehensive model that emphasizes permanent housing and supportive services for chronically homeless people. This three-year grant enables Preble Street to improve its programming, technology infrastructure and staff retention and to advance its efforts to reduce the human, social and economic toll of homelessness.
