Welcome to Hike For The Homeless
A tradition on the Bangor waterfront
20th Annual Hike for the Homeless!
April 11, 2015
This year we will be celebrating our 20th annual Hike for the Homeless along the Bangor Waterfront and we are excited to be teaming up with our friends from Spruce Run and The Shaw House!
Check out our event page on Facebook.
Over the past year, more than 2,000 individuals visited the Bangor Area Homeless Shelter in need of a clean, safe place to stay, a warm meal, and other supportive services.
Thankfully, the Bangor Area Homeless Shelter (BAHS) was there for them. BAHS is open 24 hours a day/365 days a year. A paid staff of 12 Full Time eployees suported by volunteers, provide people experiencing homelessness with shelter, crisis intervention, hot meals and a safe environment as well as connections with special services including medical and psychiatric care. Currently, 71% of the people who stay at the Shelter have a major mental illness, chronic addictions and/or medical issues. Their needs are great.
While a donation is not required to participate in the Hike, we encourage those participating to seek pledges. If everyone does a little, a lot can be accomplished!
