Mission at the Eastward (MATE) is a faith-based nonprofit that provides volunteer home repairs, transitional housing, and youth outreach to create lives of hope, dignity, and security in Central Western Maine. Our primary program, MATE Housing Ministry (MHM), offers one of the most enriching and rewarding service opportunities in the country. Each summer, 300-400 volunteers from around the east coast travel to rural Maine, usually for a week at a time, to conduct critical home repairs for mostly low-income families and the elderly. Our service keeps people safe and healthy in their homes and out of the devastating cycle of homelessness. Arguably, the most important part of our service is the deep bond that’s developed between staff, volunteers, and homeowners that delivers help, hope, and connection to all who are involved in the experience and creates a ripple effect larger than we are able to comprehend.
