Study centers open on the 1st of October! Volunteers needed!


Portland Housing Authority (PHA) administers HUD Public Housing and Section 8 Housing Programs in the City of Portland, Maine.

Together with its community partners, the PHA provides and expands affordable housing and services that improve quality of life, build community, enhance safety and promote personal success for the people we serve and the neighborhoods in which they reside.

The PHA also offers a variety of resident services with one component being the operation of Four after school Study Centers. The Study Centers are open for homework help from September to June when they transition to summer programming such as soccer, free lunch, and informal academic help. The centers also act as communal focal points for educational assistance for residents of all ages, resource centers for exploring post-secondary opportunities, a place for youth leadership development and community service. The Centers are located as follows:

  • Kennedy Park Study Center - 51 Mayo Street
  • Riverton Park Study Center - 61 Riverton Drive
  • Sagamore Village Study Center - 34 Popham Street
  • Front Street Study Center - 34 West Presumpscot Street

The PHA considers education the key to self sufficiency and independence from government assistance. The after school programs generally operate Monday through Thursday from approximately 3:00 to 7:00 PM following the Portland Public School calendar with leadership development and community service opportunities offered on Fridays.
