OHI is a Maine-based, private nonprofit organization that's been in business for 41 years. They serve six counties, providing 24-hour residential services and a variety of community services so that their clients can live independent, productive lives. Two of the business you may not realize are owned by OHI are the Brewer Area Food Pantry and the Eagle's Nest Clubhouse, which is a peer-based mental health recovery program on Main Street in Ellsworth.

What Types of Items are in The Auction?
