Mission Statement

Through our programs, we envision our at-risk friends breaking out of the cycle of homelessness and become thriving, self-sufficient citizens contributing back to society through new learned life skills, traits and giving back by means of volunteer through Mae.

Description

Mae Organization was founded in 2008, by Martinha Javid and has been operating with a board of volunteers, to combat mental illness in the homeless population through innovative holistic methods.

Due to the poverty levels and the overwhelming demand for other services in the community, MAE answered the need by expanding our programs and services. We now provide hot meals, clothing, and toiletries at strategic cities in the State of Rhode Island, we transition clients from the streets to housing and then help with job placement, we work with business to accept and train at-risk individuals, we coordinate detox needs, and much more.

We are funded by the generosity of individual, corporate donations, and grants, along with the sale of our themed products. Our goal is to raise $210,000 over the next three years. In addition to fundraising to run the programs, MAE continues efforts to fundraise and apply for grants to raise funds to pay for the lease and utilities of Mae’s wellness center to continue providing our services to all in need.
