***Gateway Community Services -Public Health- Portland
Goodwill NNE's Public Health AmeriCorps (PHA) program places members with community organizations in Maine to address CDC-determined needs for the most underserved populations. PHA specifically places members in schools and nonprofits to support youth who have been impacted by Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) by implementing the Goodwill Youth Development Model. PHA members work with community partner agencies to develop and carry out localized, evidence-based interventions, directly serving youth while increasing organizational capacity. Throughout their service, members gain the experience and training needed to prepare them for entering the public health and youth development workforce. Gateway Community Services Maine (GCSM) was created to meet gaps in the lives of our immigrant and refugee clients and offer needed case management services to asylum seekers. GCSM offers support while creating opportunities for connection between immigrant, refugee, and asylee community members and their neighbors. In 2017, after a period of organizational development, GCSM identified the need for a hub-based model that provides a center for community connections, bridge building, workshops and trainings, and youth-centered leadership and educational activities. In 2018, we opened our Gateway Hubs in Lewiston and Portland. Managed by a youth facilitator, these centers have become places for community members to receive support and learn about services, meet other people and socialize, watch a soccer game or play pool, learn about the political process and participate in civic engagement opportunities, attend a class, or take part in a workshop. Approximately twenty-five youth visit the Hub each weekend connecting and socializing in a safe and welcoming environment.
