What’s Happening

In addition to its mailing list, Progressive Portland maintains an active social media presence.

Don’t forget the city sold 4 Bayside lots that would have been ideal for a new shelter literally months before beginning the search for a shelter location.

City Hall is bought.

🚨ACTION ALERT🚨

If you don’t want more people to endure sleeping outside this winter, email planningboard@portlandmaine.gov and ask them to approve the Preble Street conditional use application.

The only thing standing between 40 human beings and warmth, safety, food, and professional social work services this winter is permission from the City of Portland to convert a Preble Street day shelter into a 24/7 Wellness Shelter.

Preble Street is on the agenda of the City of Portland Planning Board THIS TUESDAY, OCTOBER 20 for its conditional use application to turn the site of the Resource Center into a new, best practice 24/7 Wellness Shelter, like the highly successful shelter we operated at the University of Southern Maine Sullivan Gym over the summer. Each person will have their own bed and will work with a professional caseworker toward housing and other individual goals.

The building is owned by Preble Street, zoned to allow for emergency shelter, and has sheltered 75 people regularly for many years when Preble Street donated this facility to the City of Portland as its overflow space for the Oxford Street Shelter.

Thank you for lending your voice to ensure more people have warmth and safety this winter and beyond!
