Why Maine?

  • 60% of Boots2Roots Teammates and their spouses are not originally from Maine, and the number one reason that Teammates say they want to put down roots in Maine is quality of life.

  • Maine’s famous coastline spans around 228 miles long

  • Maine is home to over 3,100 off-shore islands

 “Boots2Roots provided the peace of mind that my family and I needed to be able to make the decision to come home…and three days after I got to Maine I had an interview.”

– US Marine Corps Sergeant

Boots2Roots’ Commitment to You:

We will help you prepare for a successful transition to Maine, including:

  • Self-assessment materials & feedback
  • Resume, cover letter, & interview preparation (we work together to ensure high-quality tailored products)
  • Networking (connecting you with trusted professional contacts and companies)
  • Peer mentoring (by recently separated/retired military Mainers who will help you connect)
  • Community contact referrals (“warm” hand-offs to contacts we know & trust in your new community)
  • Like military service, transition and community integration is a family affair and Boots2Roots is committed to working with you and your spouse.

We call you Teammates, not clients, because it is a team effort to make your transition to Maine a success!

Veteran Support:

Besides a beautiful state with a great quality of life, Maine has an extensive and very collaborative network of veterans and veterans support organizations.
