BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Camden National Bank announced Thursday a statewide program to discuss the topic of homelessness in Maine and provide support to help the more than 7,500 individuals, children, and families in the state without a home.
In 2015, through the Hope@Home program, Camden National Bank will donate $100 for every new home it finances to a homeless shelter in the community of the new homeowner.
"Homelessness is a growing issue in our state, and we believe it is time to help our neighbors in need. A home provides a lot more than shelter; it provides dignity, purpose, and hope. At Camden National Bank, we wanted to find a way to support all of the great organizations in our state already working on this issue," said Dufour. "Hope@Home is just one way we can help."
