Partner: Avesta Housing

“We support Sustain Southern Maine because we think it is critical that low income people in southern Maine have energy-efficient housing opportunities in locations near work and services to help lower the combined cost of housing and transportation,” say Greg Payne, Development Officer.

Avesta Housing’s mission is to promote and provide housing opportunities for Southern Maine people in need. The organization advocates for affordable housing, develops and manages high quality housing, and helps residents access other needed services.

Founded in 1972 with a shoestring budget and a staff of three, Avesta Housing has grown to become one of the country’s most innovative and respected leaders in affordable housing.”
