Founder & President
3i HoME was established to address the need for more accessible, affordable and supportive housing so that adults with physical disabilities in Maine can live independently in our communities. Following a lengthy career in business and law, Paul Linet, founded 3i Supportive Housing in 2019. 3i HoME was organized as a non-profit in 2020 as a natural outgrowth of the foundational work Paul initiated through 3i Supportive Housing.
Paul brings more than 25 years of family caregiving advocacy, as well as regulatory and legislative experience at the state and federal level, to this effort. Over the years, Paul has served as a member of the government relations committee of the Northern New England Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society; he has testified before state regulators on the impact of the Supreme Court's landmark Olmstead community-based care decision; he was an organizer and presenter at a regional symposium held under the auspices of the National Family Caregivers Association (now Caregiver Action Network); and he assists in the management of the Susan Hirschberg Linet, MD Fund administered by MaineHealth Care at Home. The Fund provides financial assistance to family members and other caregivers to chronically ill and elderly people in Maine.
In addition to Paul Linet, 3i HoME has assembled a distinguished Board of Directors and Panel of Advisors, each of whom is an expert with years of service to various stakeholder groups impacted by the accessible, affordable and supportive housing.
