Last year, Catholic Charities PATH program, in conjunction with New Beginnings, Preble Street, Tri-County Mental Health Services, Americorp/Vista, and the Lewiston/Auburn Maine Military and Community Network assisted in a statewide effort to count the number of people experiencing homelessness in Maine.

This year, organizers want to increase efforts and they are seeking the public’s help.

Here are some of the ways to help:

”¢ Volunteers can count homeless people in their community. To sign up, contact Jerry Dewitt at 576-0376 or [email protected]

Ӣ Place fliers about the survey, which include a call-in phone number, in the bags and boxes of food that will be provided to homeless people in the community.

For more information, contact Janice Lara-Hewey at [email protected] or 272-9210.
