Our mission at HRY is to ensure access to safe and stable housing for homeless and at-risk students. HRY works to enable youth to complete their education, reunify with their families when appropriate and make successful transitions to post-school life.
HRY is a Maine based non-profit organization seeking to reduce the number of homeless youth in our local community. Our team is working with a nationally recognized approach called the Host Home model. This model matches youths to vetted and trained volunteer homes in order to help the youths stay in their communities.
Respect for each youth’s dignity and individuality;
Appreciation for youth’s strengths, accomplishments, as well as their struggles;
Acceptance of their diverse background, and the impact it has on their emotional and mental development;
And on the part of HRY, a deep commitment to learning and meaningful development, for the youth in our community, our growing network of host families, and the people who support our work.
