  "People Matter Most" tells the story, in        song and pictures, of how the                      coronavirus  pandemic affected Hope        House in Lewiston, Maine.  A diverse         neighborhood rallies to share food and        other essentials, to get each other              through.
​See some staff at a 6-12-20 Lewiston protest, holding sign "Building a Community of Unity" on the 2 mile march through L/A.  Best seen at start and about 14 min. into it the Lewiston Sun Journal coverage.
Awards are being given out to all Hope House Staff who have assisted the center during this 2020 global pandemic, by selflessly enabling needed services to continue.
 Good things are   happening in Lewiston,   see 2 recent articles in the   Lewiston Sun Journal.

This is Not Goodbye
 A song to comfort the many who've lost loved ones.  Dedicated to 2 faithful supporters of Hope House: Jan's mom, Eileen, and Chaoluan, wife of Pastor Pan. And thanks to Zac & Noah Willson for guitar work (Zac) & drums ( Noah). Song by Jan Willson, recording by Bruce.
"That's What Neighbors Do" is a sequel video to "People Matter Most".  It shows that being neighborly isn't just a "nice" idea.  It's what helps diverse families survive the hardships of 2020.  New friendships thrive, and helping each other becomes much more obvious.  All on College St. in Lewiston, Maine can see that's what neighbors do.
Check out these videos!

  Special thanks to
  Dr. Colette Charles, 
  a family medicine physician,   and Pam Rousseau, our 
  sonographer, for enabling our clinic's Free Family Health Care Week this last May 2021, and for generously serving our center's families!
