Partners and Partnerships

ArtVan

“We partner with multiple organizations to ensure that our work connects to genuine community needs and contributes to sustainable change. These partnerships are symbiotic relationships that serve both the community and student learning. Partners view themselves as co-educators — they're exposing our students to challenges, showing them solutions, and preparing them for lives of public engagement. Our students and faculty members are able to offer partners not only impressive numbers of enthusiastic volunteers and many hours of problem solving, but also expertise in complex research methods and analysis. When the college community and local organizations each bring their strengths to the table, our students receive the privilege of engaging deeply with experts in the field — and in the end, the greater community benefits from coordination and collaboration.

Partnership Spotlight

Tedford Housing

Brunswick, ME
www.tedfordshelter.org

Tedford Housing believes that everyone deserves to have a safe and affordable home. Over the years, the organization has evolved from providing emergency shelter to adults in Brunswick to offering shelter, supported housing and homeless prevention services. People who are homeless often face numerous obstacles in their lives, so Tedford staff partner with various agencies depending on an individual’s or family’s specific circumstances.
MissionTo provide emergency shelter, act as an advocate for homeless people for changes in government funding, and to provide a homelessness prevention program by offering services such as a shelter, family apartments, and transitional housing.
Volunteer OpportunitiesVolunteers to assist in general maintenance; volunteers to assist in office work; volunteers to serve meals and spend time with those in the shelter.
