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.
