In February, MaineHousing, the Statewide Homeless Council, and Built for Zero established nine Homeless Response Service Hubs in Maine. Each command center will be staffed by a hub coordinator.

In May, the hub teams will start collecting real-time, by-name data of people experiencing homelessness across the state. Hub command centers and coordinators will then use that data to make investments to reduce homelessness in their assigned communities.

Those hubs, and coordinators, are:

• York County — York County Community Action Corp.• Cumberland County — United Way of Southern Maine• Midcoast, including Sagadahoc, Knox, Lincoln, Waldo counties and the towns of Brunswick and Harpswell — United Way of Southern Maine• Androscoggin County — Lewiston Housing Authority• Western Maine, Franklin and Oxford counties and the towns of Livermore and Livermore Falls in Androscoggin County — Western Maine Community Action• Central Maine, including the counties of Somerset and Kennebec — Volunteers of America Northern New England• Penquis, including the counties of Penobscot and Piscataquis — Community Health and Counseling Services• Downeast, including the counties of Washington and Hancock — Community Health and Counseling Services• Aroostook County — Aroostook County Community Action Program
