The Merrymeeting Project was started fourteen years ago to help homeless and at-risk young people. It is funded by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and administered by the Maine Department of Education. Last year, it became a program of Tedford Housing
The Merrymeeting Project advocates for the educational rights of homeless youth (under the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act). It is a collaboration between Tedford Housing and three school programs: RSU-1, Brunswick School Department, and SAD 75. For more information, contact Donna Verhoeven at (207)729-1161 x-103.
