Our Mission


Breaking cycles of poverty and homelessness in Midcoast Maine


Knox County Homeless Coalition is the only dedicated homeless services organization serving Knox county, as well as parts of Waldo and Lincoln counties. After re-opening Hospitality House in 2014 and developing our wraparound programming, we now see a clear path to a strong and hopeful future for all who live and work here. We’re addressing root causes of homelessness through innovation and collaboration around affordable housing. We’re achieving incredible results in breaking the cycle of homelessness through wrap-around Client Services. And with our comprehensive youth program, The Landing Place, we are deepening our capacity to reach whole families in the most effective and impactful ways possible.


Our Vision


A supportive community within which all families and individuals have the opportunity for housing and a sustainable productive life.
