providing neighborhood support to families. 

In support of our country's rich legacy of immigration, and the shared values of neighbor helping neighbor, Hope House wholeheartedly welcomes New Mainers from 
all faiths and all countries of origin.

Meet the founders of Hope House on the "About" page.

​The Portland Press Herald reported, 9-22-16, "immigrants can provide a vital spark to an economy".  We at Hope House have found this to be true, as our Family Support Center in Lewiston could not be open and providing help to our community without the hard work of the New Mainers as they volunteer.
Join the fun on Wednesday mornings!

Thought you'd be encouraged by this article. We attended the memorial service it highlights, and it was packed with a wide array of community members...we saw some of our Christian friends, Jewish friends, and Muslim friends. A Muslim drummer, who Rabbi Dresdner introduced as "my dear friend", played drums with their worship band that accompanied the sung prayers and worship that wove throughout the service.

 As Lisa, the rabbi's wife, looked out on the growing crowd pouring in for the service, we heard her comment to someone in front of us that she was not expecting such an outpouring of love, and it overwhelmed her to tears. We heard that the nation saw similar wide response in other towns across the country at this last Friday's Shabbat services, just a week after the killings at the Shabbat service in Pennsylvania. God's love is stronger than hate! -Bruce & Jan, Hope House
