Our Mission

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.

Our mission is to develop and administer programs to enhance the safety and quality of life for children, youth, and families through a quality, comprehensive continuum of care in the fields of social services, education, corrections, mental health, and housing.

We provide a variety of supportive services through our children’s crisis stabilization unit, housing and case management programs, homeless youth outreach services, homeless shelters, and low-income housing to children, adolescents, young adults and families in need of treatment, housing, or support. Established by local individuals with a sincere interest in the welfare of children at risk, RGH has continued to grow and respond to the changing needs of the State of Maine and our local community. We have added community-based case management programs and in recent years we have seen tremendous growth in our Homeless Programs Division.​

The majority of the individuals our agency serves have extremely low income, or none at all, and are in the process of rebuilding their lives with a lack of resources and limited support network. We strive to empower our guests to re-build their lives in a positive way that promotes their long-term self-sufficiency. Through the Housing First model, we want to give our guests the tools and knowledge to break down barriers to accessing housing, become successfully employed, continue their education, and lead productive and fulfilling lives.​

Last year we provided 16,305 bed nights in our shelter and housing programs in rural Oxford County. These services provided a safe haven for 83 families who would have had no other place to go and addressed the major areas of concern in this area of poverty and underemployment. We are known as the primary provider of homeless services in Oxford County and we have increased the number and type of homeless services we provide over the past five years in response to the overwhelming needs of the communities we serve.
