The Greater Portland Immigrant Welcome Center (GPIWC) serves as a hub of collaboration to strengthen the immigrant community through language acquisition, economic integration and civic engagement. We achieve that mission through four unique programs: 

  • GPIWC Business Hub: A co-working space that houses mission-aligned organizations and supports immigrant entrepreneurs through training, mentoring and technical assistance. 
  • The iEnglish Project: Digital language literacy, a web-based English and workforce language training program.
  •   Citizenship & Civic Engagement Initiative: Citizenship assistance, civic education and nonpartisan voter registration.
  • Food Security and Nutrition Program:  Facilitates families’ access to free, culturally appropriate food and information about a healthy diet.
