More than 15,000 of Maine’s young people will experience an episode of homelessness this year.

There are a number of ways you can join New Beginnings in our fight to end youth homelessness in Maine.

Make a year-end contribution to our annual fund. As a business owner, you understand the rising cost of doing business. Annual donations from community-minded businesses and organizations like yours keep our essential services running and our doors open for all youth in need. Your year-end gift is an investment – transforming the lives of today’s homeless youth into stable adults who can become our community’s future employees and customers. Offer to Match employee contributions. Encourage your employees to make a donation to New Beginnings that your business can match, and watch your combined contribution do even more good.

Include New Beginnings in your 2019 Charitable Giving plans. Please think of New Beginnings as your begin making plans for your next giving season. We’d welcome the opportunity to take you on a tour of our programs or come speak with your Charitable Giving Committee about our work in 2019.

Sponsor our 2019 Annual Dinner. We have a variety of sponsorships available and we’d love to have your business join our event. Find sponsor levels and benefit details at online. If event sponsorship isn’t for you, we have other opportunities throughout the year where your business can show its support and receive positive exposure. Please email to learn more about any of our sponsorship opportunities.

Donate services or goods. Reduced cost goods or services mean more of the funds we raise go directly to helping the youth we serve. We are currently seeking donations of services including printing, graphic and video design, photography, media relations, landscaping, carpentry, catering, and field trip activities for youth. We also always appreciate donations of goods like school and office supplies, paper goods, food and beverages, meeting and events facilities, gift certificates, and new blankets and winter gear for youth living on the streets. If your company is interested in making a donation of goods or services that you think may be appropriate for New Beginnings, please email

Organize an in-kind donation drive or fundraiser at your business. You can help spread the word about New Beginnings by involving your staff and customers. Contribute the funds raised from a dress-down day, holiday party, or other fundraiser, or host a donation drive any time of year. Contact us to find out what kinds of items are on our agency wish list year-round.
