May 03, 2021

Rockland — New Hope for Women, now celebrating its 40th anniversary as Midcoast Maine’s only domestic violence resource center, announces the launch of its new website at As part of the agency’s rebranding, the improved website helps community members affected by domestic abuse, dating violence and stalking quickly find what they need.

The site is now mobile-friendly, with immediate connection to the agency’s helpline and direct access the national chat service. The site also provides detailed, up-to-date content on legal services, emergency sheltering, housing, and support groups. Enhanced information on prevention and education services includes how to recognize abuse and teen dating violence, and how technology can impact abuse. There is clear access to services, trainings and resources. Also incorporated are greater accessibility for the visually impaired, translation services, enhanced donation options, including planned giving, and more ways for the community to become involved in efforts to end oppressions.

“We now have a website that’s much more responsive to local community need” said Executive Director Rebekah Paredes, “and we’re delighted to introduce it as the first step in reimagining New Hope for Women.”

A new, gender-inclusive name and an updated logo are also part of this year’s rebranding process. New Hope for Women invites the public to watch for these changes and to visit the website often as information will be continually updated
