We engage neighbors and volunteers to cultivate social, economic, and spiritual wholeness as part of God's Kingdom.


Since 1984, we have been committed to loving the residents of Maine's most impoverished neighborhoods. This began when volunteers opened a teen center in the basement of a church in the Munjoy Hill neighborhood of Portland. In 2009, we opened our 2nd site in the heart of Lewiston's Tree Street Neighborhood.
