"My name is Christopher and I stayed at the Bangor Area Homeless Shelter from mid June 2010 till October 2, 1010. While I stayed at the shelter they provided me with help to get a job, a safe place to sleep at night and 3 meals a day. The staff was awesome. They helped me get the medications I needed and the help I needed for my various problems.
The staff is exceptional at the shelter. My case worker, Marla, is a person I owe a lot to for helping me get what I needed from my birth certificate to medications. She goes above and beyond what her job is and to her I owe a lot. The other staff, LJ, Holly, Rowena and Dennis all helped me to get out of the shelter. Dennis, the person who is in charge of the shelter, gave me tips on jobs he heard of as did all the staff.
I made lunch there and helped out in the kitchen as needed. I am a chef and I love to cook. I did whatever staff asked me to do. I was thankful for a safe place to stay. Everyone at the shelter is a blessing, they helped when I needed it. I cannot say enough good things about the shelter. They help you get what you need to get you a place to live and get employement.
I would like to say Thank You to all the staff and board members for the shelter and what they did for me and others.
"When I arrived at the Bangor Area Homeless Shelter, I thought life was over for me. With the help of the shelter, and the State of Maine, I found out how wrong I was—life had just begun.
Every door I tried, opened up wide for me. I arrived 4 ½ years ago, and in that short period of time, I earned my Section 8 Voucher, took the homebuyer's course, and I'm now buying a house. 3 years ago, I enrolled at Umaine—I'm currently a junior, earning an English degree and minoring in Disability Studies. I plan on dedicating what's left of my life, to writing grants for those who need help. I credit all of my achievements to the beginning—the way the shelter opened my first door. Thank you...Randy"
