Lewiston Mayor Kaileigh Tara was the guest speaker at the annual meeting of Androscoggin Habitat for Humanity. Tara applauded the efforts of the local Habitat organization and commended Habitat for providing a bridge of hope between those in need and those who can help.

“If someone doesn’t have a place to come home to, it is very difficult to be grounded and focused,” Tara commented. “From my own personal experiences, I understand the plight and struggle that families deal with every day. It may look like there is no hope, but often the hope is just lost. The work that Habitat does |s the bridge to hope.”
