Hope Acts, in Portland, Maine, is working to build a community where all people experience well-being. Our programs focus on New Mainers so that they have the safety, stability, and resources they need to help them reach their full potential—improving their lives and enriching our community as a whole.

The center of Hope Acts is the state’s only dedicated residential program for asylum seekers—Hope House. As they work to transform their lives, New Mainers are provided educational, legal, social and leadership-focused programs to increase their success in work and independent living.
“The Hope House community is my family where I live with other immigrants from Africa, sharing our experiences, good and bad. Hope House is my life in America.” — Armand Turinyungu, Hope House Resident
