About Portland of Opportunity

Portland of Opportunity is a game for immigrants and refugees living in Portland, Maine to learn about services available to them in Portland. The game ends with a survey for players to provide feedback to city government on how to better serve immigrants and refugees. The project was funded by the Office of Economic Opportunity (OEO) in Portland, Maine and was designed in collaboration with an Advisory Team of community members and organizations serving immigrants and refugees in Portland. The OEO will use game and survey data to better understand immigrants’ experiences, identify gaps in Portland’s resources, and inform budgeting decisions for the City of Portland.
