the sgt. Joel fund is not accepting applications for summer 2020
Sgt. Joel A. House
These pages are dedicated to the memory of our hero, Sgt. Joel A. House, who was killed in 2007 while serving in the U.S. Army by a roadside bomb in Taji, Iraq. Joel was known for his guitar playing, his understated sense of humor, and his fierce commitment to his family and friends. We--his family and friends--miss him so much, but we are so proud of him. This scholarship program is our way of honoring Joel's life and his ultimate sacrifice. Learn More
Helping Maine kids reach their dreams:
The scholarship encourages children to dream about what they love doing and gives them a opportunity to attend one week of an academic, sports, visual/performing arts, conservation, or Bible camp of their choice. No matter where each child is along his or her pathway, from “dabbling for fun” or “pressing towards excellence”, summer camps provide an excellent opportunity to learn in a caring, hands-on environment.
