Hope House has been honored to host teams coming to help us love our Lewiston neighbors. Teams of students from Boston, from Northeastern University as well as Wellesley College, gave time during their 2023 spring breaks to volunteer at our Family Support Center. We love the videos below made by one of the team's members, Swapna Palavesa Kannan. It well reflects the fun, energy, and compassion that teams bring to our struggling neighborhood.
Hope House was honored to welcome Maine's Speaker of the House Rachel Talbot Ross, Senator Peggy Rotundo, & State Representative Margaret Craven to a recent Market Day (video to the right).
