Hope House was recently invited to celebrate the successful launching of Greater Boston Refugee Ministry. In the midst of a growing global debate surrounding refugee resettlement, Boston is now compassionately leading the way! We were so honored to participate in their 1st Annual Banquet, "Hopes and Dreams", on Nov. 21 in Burlington, Mass. Seen above are: Lewiston friends who attended with us, Baby Pemba and Jan singing "Dream Some Dreams" in the program, (Special thanks to Torli Krua for including us in GBRM events!)

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)
