Hope House Co-Director, Bruce Willson, recently attended a rally on the steps of the city hall of Portland Maine. It was to show support of the Somali community of Maine after they had been wrongly characterized as adding to the crime situation in Maine. According to the local police in both Portland, and Lewiston where Hope House has it's support center, crime has decreased since the Somalis have been a part of our communities. (see article/video)
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 our immigrant neighbors as they volunteer.
