Healthy Homeworks is a community organization in Lewiston, Maine. We engage and support residents, steward neighborhoods, and create city-wide collaborations that help Lewiston thrive.

Here’s how.

Resident Engagement

A community’s health and happiness depend on how well each resident’s needs are met. We’re focused on giving Lewiston’s residents resources to lead a healthy, happy life – from a new bed to a free space to host their child’s birthday. At every turn, our goal is to inspire, empower, and connect residents with resources and each other.

Neighborhood Stewardship

Lewiston’s neighborhoods are home to the highest density of children under 5 in the state. They deserve a safe and healthy place to grow up. That means safe housing and space to play. We partner with renters, owners, property managers, and other organizations to create healthy housing and vibrant outdoor spaces.

City-Wide Collaboration

All across Lewiston, community members, organizations, and municipal departments have their own data and expertise they use to create safer homes in Lewiston’s neighborhoods. We bring these community knowledge-holders together to share information with each other and put vital data about housing safety in the public’s hands.

Buy a bed,

Give a bed.

When you buy a Healthy Homeworks bed, you give someone who needs one the chance to build their own in our Build-a-Bed program in Lewiston’s Pepperell Mill.

“Thank you for restoring my faith in humanity.”

Why Lewiston?

Maine’s second-largest and youngest city, Lewiston is brimming with energy, talent, and community pride. Young families fill its downtown, which is home to the highest density of children under 5 in the state.

It’s also home to some of Maine’s most dangerously deteriorated housing, which threatens the health of its community.

Investing in Lewiston means keeping Maine’s families healthy, safe, and ready to build the future of Maine.

“Healthy Homeworks identifies innovative solutions to the challenges our neighborhoods face while building the skills and opportunities of their neighbors. We are thrilled to partner with them to build a stronger Lewiston.”

– Misty Parker

Economic Development Manager, City of Lewiston
