Ways to Support Maine Veterans’ Homes

As an independent nonprofit organization, Maine Veterans’ Homes relies on the generosity of individuals and organizations to help us care for those who served. Daily, we provide care and comfort to approximately 600 veterans and spouses in our six facilities across Maine.

At each of our nursing homes, we have a very active base of volunteers and contributors. Individuals from veterans’ service organizations and the community at large make regular visits, call out bingo, read to residents, and provide those little things that make a big difference.

We believe it is a privilege and our responsibility to provide care and support for those who honorably served our country.

We thank you for supporting the honored veterans of Maine!
