Founded in May 2020

Black Owned Maine (BOM) is a nonprofit organization based in Portland, Maine. BOM began in June 2020 as an online directory for Black businesses, nonprofits, professionals, groups, and artists but quickly grew into so much more. 

Our mission is to promote economic empowerment for Black people in Maine. Our goals include rebranding Maine as a welcoming place for Black people of all cultural and ethnic backgrounds. We aim to connect Black communities from across the state.
