Housing

Safe and Supportive Homes

Bread of Life Ministries is blessed 83 apartment units in nine buildings throughout the Augusta area. We are proud to offer a variety of units ranging from boarding room style living quarters to efficiencies to two- and three-bedrooms. We offer several transitional housing units which provide a subsidized rent for a maximum of two years.  We also have permanent housing, which provides tenants the ability to remain in the unit without time restraints.

It is our goal to provide those in need with safe, affordable housing and to provide support for tenants to become the best versions of themselves.

If you are interested in housing, please fill out our housing application and return to our Housing Coordinator at housing@mainebreadoflife.org or drop off at our 159 Water Street Office in Augusta. Please note that all housing applications must be complete and accompanied by an APD Background check (see below) in order to be reviewed. 

You’ll also need to fill out an Augusta Police Department Background Check authorization. The form can be printed here and brought into The Augusta Police Department to be completed by the Dispatcher on duty.
