Tenants of Park Woods make a two-year commitment to hard work and a cooperative effort to create self-sufficiency for themselves and their neighbors.  They agree to partner as individuals and with staff to build an atmosphere of mutual support, respect, safety and solidarity within their 60 unit community.  In exchange, the Park Woods staff takes a proactive role in helping provide the resources necessary to assist residents in their effort to achieve self-sufficiency.

The City of Bangor’s Park Woods Transitional Housing Program regularly partners with community members to complement its own initiatives such as the Learning Center, to bring educational and developmental offerings to resident family members of all ages.
