AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Maine Gov. Paul LePage is giving $30,000 from his contingency fund to help renovate a home for young adults with special needs.

LePage’s office said Friday that the money will go toward refurbishing the Parish House, which is owned by Bar Harbor-based nonprofit Local Solutions.

Six young adults will live in the Parish House, which will also offer services to help residents find jobs and other activities.

Local Solutions is teaming up with the Portland-based non-profit Community Housing of Maine in the effort.
