Get Involved

While writing ONE GOAL: A Coach, A Team, and the Game that Brought a Divided Town Together, I learned a lot about the largely unsung heroes that make a community work.  Here are just a few that could always use a little more support.

The Blue Devils are getting a new home field!  The Franklin Pasture Sports Complex Fundraising Campaign will put Lewiston "on the map" for championship level athletic facilities and competitions, providing growing opportunities for Lewiston’s children. The complex will be an investment with far-reaching impact to  vast school and recreation activities, as well as the City of Lewiston as a whole.  

The Trinity Jubilee Center is a non-religious organization located in the heart of downtown Lewiston, Maine. The Center's five programs, the Meals Program, Food Pantry, Day Shelter, Resource Center, and Refugee Integration Program, serve more than 1,000 people every week.

Maine Immigrant and Refugee Services (MEIRS) educates, assists, and empowers immigrant and refugee youth and their families toward a goal of social and economic self-sufficiency and mental, emotional and physical wellbeing. MEIRS promotes a pathway toward citizenship and community engagement, creating opportunities for inclusion and meaningful participation for immigrants and refugees.  

Founded in 1979, LAYSA promotes and enhances the great game of soccer in the Lewiston Auburn area. LAYSA is a member of Soccer Maine and is affiliated with the United States Youth Soccer Association (USYSA). LAYSA offers a fall soccer program for boys and girls ages 4-13 and a spring travel season. The program involves over 1000 players on over 70 teams. 

At the Harward Center for Community Partnerships at Bates College, students, faculty, and staff enact the college’s civic mission through reciprocal and sustained partnerships that connect the college and the community in mutually beneficial and transformative ways.  As they partner with off-campus communities to address pressing societal needs, Bates students develop the intellectual, ethical, and personal skills needed for lifelong civic responsibility and purposeful work.

Maine Community Integration (MCI) is a non-profit organization promoting support and understanding of community and culture, focusing on education, advocacy, and social change.
