About the Series » Asylum Seeker Resource Center

A group works together at a table.

Representatives from Hope Acts will be on site to help with language interpretation and to provide FREE resources including computer printouts, photocopies, and mailing envelopes. Hope Acts, through a partnership with the Immigration Resource Center of Maine, is also able to provide financial assistance to cover the costs of passport photos and certified mail for asylum seekers. Representatives cannot offer legal advice, but they can help translate documents that describe legal matters. 

By appointment only. Call (207) 409-9503 to make an appointment. Or stop by the Hope House at 14 Sherman Street on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
