Augusta house readied for female homeless veterans


By Jason Pafundi

Martha Everatt St. Pierre said she was researching ways to help her homeless veteran brother when she realized there were no places for homeless female veterans and their children. She hopes the organization she founded in 2014 becomes that place.
St. Pierre and the Betsy Ann Ross House of Hope closed on the purchase of a large home at 8 Summer St. in Augusta last month with hopes of turning it into a place for nine homeless female veterans and their children.
“These women haven’t done anything wrong, but they cannot get out of the circumstances they find themselves in,” St. Pierre said while touring the home last week. “These are women that served our country, and they need our help.”

The 178-year-old house, which is assessed at $224,000 including land, has more than 4,000 square feet, about 3,200 of which will be used to house homeless veterans. St. Pierre said the house also has an attic she hopes to eventually convert into an efficiency apartment.
The house will accommodate the veterans for up to two years, and St. Pierre hopes that once they leave the program, they will have “money in the bank, a place to go that will be their home and will be on solid footing.”
