Creating Self-Dignity & Self-Sufficiency

Bread Of Life Ministries - Permanent Housing


     Realizing opportunities for Permanent Housing was needed by our clients and many in the Greater Augusta community, Bread of Life expanded in 2005 into the ministry of offering housing for people with minimum income and those with great need. Starting with units for singles, Connolly Green on State St. was built offering 9 units of housing.

     In January 2007, the Lawrence House was purchased and continues to be refurbished offering 23 units of housing. By the fall of 2007, another 30 units of housing was taken over by Bread of Life Ministries just off Sewell Street. The Arch Alpha facility became known as Westman Village due to the generosity of Ms. Elsie Westman who remembered Bread of Life Ministries in her will.

     In cooperation with funding from Maine Housing and HUD, this unique project received national recognition for multi-agency cooperation and will offer fully renovated 30 units of two bedroom housing over the next 5 years.

     The most recent venture into housing is the Cony Village Veteran's Project. Bread of Life has committed to building up to 20 very affordable new homes in this new neighborhood (the first in over 30 years in Augusta) for veterans and disabled veterans.
