The reasons why one becomes homeless are complicated to comprehend. One certainty we can have, is that no one’s dream was ever to become a forgotten homeless person someday. Mae Organization has been operating with a board of volunteers, to combat homelessness.
We are funded by the generosity of individual, corporate donations, and grants, along with the sale of our themed products.
We couldn't accomplish all we do without our volunteers. Please consider joining our amazing team of volunteers.
