Downeast Community Partners, Maine Seacoast Mission, Assabet Valley Regional Technical High School, and the CF Adams Foundation have a long successful track record of working together to make family homes in rural Downeast Maine safe and warm. This new venture — the Downeast Maine Tiny House Project — has the four groups building a brand new tiny house to be located in Cherryfield, Maine, for a formerly homeless US military veteran with a disability. The veteran, who has asked to remain anonymous, is also helping with financing the Project.

DCP’s mission is to improve the quality of life and reduce the impact of poverty in Downeast communities. Learn more.
For over a century, the Maine Seacoast Mission has been asking Mainers what they need — and meeting those needs every day.
The Mission’s Housing Rehabilitation Program based at our Downeast Campus repairs or rebuilds twenty houses a year for local families. Repairs and renovations range from painting to insulated mobile home skirting to new roofs. The families contribute sweat equity to the rebuilding projects and often have one or more children active in the Mission’s EdGE program. Learn more.
