If you are homeless and need emergency shelter, or need transitional or subsidized housing to get back on your feet, MaineHousing may be able to help. We finance emergency shelters and other affordable housing options, and can help you locate this housing. We also provide rental assistance to people who are homeless and working toward self-sufficiency. MaineHousing and its partners are working to end homelessness in Maine.
