Quality Housing Coalition has received a donation of $30,000 from InterMed to help in their efforts to address the homelessness crisis in Greater Portland. The coalition is working to secure permanent homes and financial stability for individuals and families experiencing homelessness.
InterMed, Maine’s largest independent physician-owned practice, has grown to serve more than 100,000 patients across the state with a team of more than 900 clinicians and staff. They have offices in Portland, South Portland and Yarmouth. The donation was made to commemorate InterMed’s 30th anniversary and their commitment to supporting organizations that directly work to mitigate the affordable housing crisis in southern Maine.
“We believe that stable housing is the foundation of health and are so excited to partner with InterMed to address the community conditions Maine people need to thrive,” said Victoria Morales, executive director of the Quality Housing Coalition. “Lack of access to housing is a major barrier to good health, and we are grateful for InterMed’s support in our mission.”
