United Way, together with LAASH (Lewiston-Auburn Alliance for Services for the Homeless), has launched a 10 Year Plan to End Homelessness in Lewiston/Auburn.
On any given night, 100 people in our community are looking for a place to call home. They are not visible to the general public. They are hidden in apartments where they move from one friend's couch to another, or in shelters, or in cars and campgrounds in the summer. Some of the homeless are immigrants and refugees. Some are victims of domestic violence. Some are single adults -- many of whom have mental illness. Some are veterans. Some are children.
