The Greater Waterville Interfaith Council of Churches founded the Mid-Maine Homeless Shelter (MMHS) and opened for services on November 26, 1990. In 2019 we changed our name to Mid-Maine Homeless Shelter & Services to reflect all the progressive work of the shelter. Our mission is to provide safe shelter, food, support services, and an avenue to self-sufficiency for homeless adults in our community. Ending homelessness one person, one child, one family at a time. Our vision and mission are based on three core values: (1) we believe in the inherent strength of the people we serve and trust they are able to determine the course of their lives and achieve housing stability; (2) we believe in building relationships of mutual trust and respect by recognizing the right of self-determination of everyone and ensuring that underrepresented voices are given an opportunity to influence decisions and speak their truth; (3) we believe that simple, decent and affordable housing is a right for all people and is necessary for building and sustaining healthy communities.
