The Quality Housing Coalition is thrilled to announce that they have received a $30,000 donation from InterMed to help in their efforts to address the homelessness crisis in Greater Portland. The coalition is working tirelessly to secure permanent homes and financial stability for individuals and families experiencing homelessness. InterMed, Maine’s largest independent physician-owned practice, established in 1993 and has grown to serve more than 100,000 patients across the state with a team of over 900 clinicians and staff.
InterMed President Dr. Phyllidia Ku-Ruth stated that to commemorate their 30th anniversary, they wanted to place their support with an organization that directly works to mitigate the affordable housing crisis in southern Maine. This partnership between InterMed and Quality Housing Coalition aims to address the community conditions that Maine people need to thrive. The lack of access to housing is a major barrier to good health, which is why this collaboration is so essential.
The Quality Housing Coalition’s Project HOME program has provided 650 permanent homes to more than 1,500 adults and children who have experienced homelessness. With this new donation, the coalition will continue its mission of providing stable housing as a foundation for health and well-being.
