The Healey Asylum
opened in Lewiston Maine in 1983 under the Les Soeur de la Charite. The French-Canadian Sisters of Charity was a group of nuns who traveled from Montreal to Lewiston Maine to provide health and social support for the French-Canadian population in the area. Healey Asylum began as an orphanage and housed approximately 100 children, most of whom were in 5-7 years old. Historical records suggest that it was debatable as to whether the facility cared specifically for children with mental health diseases.
