Camden National Bank donates more than $20,000 to Waterville homeless shelter

Mid-Maine Homeless Shelter, in Waterville, has received nearly $20,000 from Camden National Bank’s [email protected] program,  according to a news release from the bank.

“We’re experiencing an increase in homeless youth in our community,” said Karyn Bournival, interim executive director of Mid-Maine Homeless Shelter, according to the release. “Our Youth Empowerment program started in 2017 to address a pressing need. There are currently 12 participants who are working on transitioning to permanent housing, enrolling in college, pursuing higher education and/or entering the workforce, and we know we could serve more.”

Mid-Maine Homeless Shelter receives only 25 percent of needed operational funding from federal sources, so it is reliant upon donors  to fund the remaining 75-percent of its budget.

Camden National has funded the program since 2015 by donating $100 for every new home financed at the bank to a local shelter in the community of the new homeowner. Through the program, the bank has generated more than $360,000 in unrestricted funding to 50 shelters throughout Maine, according to the bank.
