Live Healthy, Live Well, Get Answers, Get Connected

Between now and Tuesday, we need to convince House and Senate republicans that we need action on LD 1205 because we need more affordable senior housing right now.  We have seniors living in crisis all over Maine because they cannot access the housing they need. We can’t ask these folks to wait longer. 

We need constituents to call republican Senators or Representatives at home.  We need to have older adults meet with republican Senators and Representatives in their districts to talk about the need for more affordable senior housing. These meetings and calls have to happen within the next few days.
