To honor September 11, 2016, The Windham Eagle organized an advertising campaign with each ad sold donating a portion to Veterans, Inc. - Maine. The fundraising efforts raised $260 to be sent to their Lewiston headquarters to benefit local veterans.
Veterans Inc. is New England’s leading provider of support services to veterans and their families. A 501 (c)(3) nonprofit, the organization’s mission is to help veterans re-gain control of their lives so they can eliminate homelessness among veterans. Veterans Inc. has a residential facility in Lewiston which houses veterans who otherwise might be homeless and helps them with employment, training and support services. They also have mobile outreach and services at offices in both Lewiston and Portland.
“The Veterans Inc. Maine team provides homeless veterans and veterans who are at risk of becoming homeless with transitional housing, assistance accessing permanent housing, counseling, case management, employment services, job training, family support programs, benefits counseling and advocacy and temporary financial assistance.”
Veterans Inc. has helped more than 55,000 veterans.
