PREBLE STREET

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 22 people are interested

Calling all early risers! They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and thanks to the Resource Center Soup Kitchen, hundreds of people eat a hot breakfast 365 days a year. But this doesn't just happen on its own. We're looking for folks who are interested in committing to a regular, weekly breakfast shift to help make sure that all our neighbors can eat a healthy, nutritious breakfast.

We need volunteers-ages 13 or older if accompanied by an adult (15 or older if unaccompanied)-to help prepare, serve, and clean up for breakfast, 7-10am, 365 days a year.

Mission Statement

The mission of Preble Street is to provide accessible barrier-free services to empower people experiencing problems with homelessness, housing, hunger, and poverty, and to advocate for solutions to these problems.

Description

In 1975 Preble Street was founded as a neighborhood center to involve and empower homeless and low-income residents. As homelessness became an urban issue, Preble Street was the first agency in Maine to recognize that homeless people needed a place to stay during the day and has operated a day shelter since 1981, providing free meals and access to clothing, phones, bathrooms, mail, and linkage to community resources for housing, healthcare, mental health treatment, employment, etc.

As ideas for a more unified community resource center emerged, Preble Street launched a unique collaborative partnership of private and public agencies working together to meet the immediate and long-term needs of the homeless and low-income residents of Greater Portland, consolidating three soup kitchens, a food pantry, the City of Portland Homeless Healthcare Clinic, a day shelter, social services, a housing location program, and a homelessness prevention program.

This model was replicated in 1996 at the Teen Center and expanded to include overnight shelters for homeless youth and women in 2004 and 2007, respectively. The first permanent low-barrier supportive housing for chronically homeless adults in Maine, Logan Place, was opened in 2005, as well as casework support for previously homeless families in community-based housing.

Today, Preble Street has become the hub of programs for the most vulnerable and underserved residents of Portland.
