Bangor Area Homeless Shelter has helped more than 5,000 individuals in need of a clean, safe place to stay, a hot meal, and other supportive services. And thanks to community support, the shelter was there for them.
BAHS is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Twenty-one full and part- time employees, along with scores of volunteers, work to provide shelter, crisis intervention, hot meals, and a safe environment. Currently 87% of the people that stay at the shelter have a mental illness, chronic addiction and/or medical issues. BAHS provides important connections for services, including medical and psychiatric care.
