CoCo Maine’s mission is to facilitate the integration of the Congolese people in our shared community, and to assist new Americans during their transition to life here in Maine while promoting entrepreneurship, Congolese culture and value through educational, social event, and the public forum within the State of Maine, FMI: http://facebook.com/pages/Congolese-Community-of-Maine/201848326560842.

Founded in 2010, Mayo Street Arts is community arts and performance venue in the East Bayside neighborhood of Portlans. Located next to Kennedy Park, a public housing development and close to many other public housing areas, it is known for its Children's Puppet Workshop, which incorporates Portland's professional artist community and many children of immigrant families which focuses on puppetry and story-telling. Mayo Street Arts partners with a number of local organizations, including the East Bayside Neighborhood Association, Learning Works, the Maine College of Art, and now United Way of Greater Portland’s Brick & Beam Society.
