The Maine Homeless Veterans Action Committee (ME HVAC), the Veteran Committee of the Maine Continuum of Care (MCOC), formed as a collaboration of several agencies and organizations to ensure that Veteran homelessness is rare, brief and non-recurring and was adopted as a joint committee of the MCOC in 2016. ME HVAC meets the first Tuesday of each month from 1pm-3pm at the Lewiston VA Clinic (CBOC) at 15 Challenger Drive, Lewiston. These meetings are open. Please email Rob Liscord at if you would like to join our email list.
