Office ManagerRebecca Thomson is our Office Manager. She grew up in a small town in northern Maine, where she learned the value of hard work at an early age. Aside from picking potatoes, her first “real” job was at a law firm at the age of 16. It was there that she discovered her great love of analyzing information, creative technical writing, and creating beautifully organized files from chaotic stacks of paper (really).

Hank wishes he was a Mainer. He has only lived here since 1977, so he is “from away”. However, he loves his adopted state. Experiences in volunteering at Preble Street, outside the Oxford Street shelter, and a series of meetings on the opioid epidemic led Hank to question how we can break the cycle of Drug Dependency, Homelessness and Incarceration.
