When the Trust was established in 2018, we set to work to understand the problems and implications of limited affordable housing in Kennebunkport. We looked at the historical trends, crunched the numbers, and listened to stories and realities of our neighbors and friends who were being impacted. Quickly, we learned that no matter how we sliced the information, the math—and trajectory—for our small seaside town just didn't add up to a thriving, year-round community.


In response, we set our sights high. We established a mission to create and sustain affordable housing for year-round residents in Kennebunkport, fueled by a vision to build 25 permanently affordable homes by 2025. And we made our commitment to the community clear promising to work hard so people like our teachers, first responders, local employees, fishermen, healthcare workers, and seniors, would have affordable housing options here in our community.


LAST YEAR, we created a plan, asked for your help to make the vision a reality, and were overwhelmed with the level of support you offered.

TODAY, we deliver on our promise, and affordable homeownership in Kennebunkport is a reality for six new families.

NOW, we need your help again. We've got 19 more homes to go and no time to lose. The time to achieve our vision is moving quickly.
