Located in the center of Biddeford, ME, Seeds of Hope is open to everyone who is in need of a supportive place to seek companionship , discover available options and perhaps even develop new skills and talents.


The center is staffed by trained volunteers to facilitate the needs of those using the center. The volunteers offer a hospitality of presence with a cup of coffee, expanded continental breakfast/lunch and a warm comfortable space. Volunteers serve as a resource to neighbors who need anything from a sympathetic ear to accessing local forms of assistance.
