Steve Eyler, Executive Director, Homeless Services of Aroostook, is welcomed by Rotarian Mike Bosse, Program Host, in left photo, and enjoys a lighter moment in right photo.

Steve visited the club’s regular Wednesday meeting and brought the members up to date with respect to services provided by the homeless shelter in Presque Isle as well as the statistics concerning shelter usage.

It turns out to be a somewhat good news/bad news situation. The good news, the shelter exists and provides services to as many of those who are in need as capacity allows. The bad news, with the shelter being the only one of its kind in the county (providing an alcohol/drug-free environment), the shelter is full to capacity most of the time. Although, Steve emphasized that anyone in need should not hesitate to contact the shelter as at any given time there may a bed(s) available.

All support, whether monetary or physical assets, is welcomed and received most thankfully by the shelter.
