Hope House clients and staff joined the packed town hall at Lewiston's July 15th city council meeting, to protest the mayor's plan to end the town's general assistance to asylum seekers. (Sun Journal article) The city council heard from Hope House director, Bruce Willson, vouching for the hardworking and helpful new residents we have had the privilege to get to know. One is Baby Pemba, a recording artist from Angola, who told her compelling story at the meeting of having to flee when her song "Africa" made her a target. Go to "Africa" to view her amazing song video, where she declares that God is Africa's only hope.

Thanks to all who donated towards the funeral/burial costs of our beloved volunteer, Laudrinha Kubeloso, as well as helping to enable her mother to travel here for the service.
Hope House is committed to continued teaming with others in the community, to see that no women are victims of violence as she was. Our town will greatly miss her.
