The Agape Board of Directors is pleased to announce that they have selected a new Program Coordinator. Zoe Brokos, a harm reduction organizer from Portland, Maine, will be joining the organization to promote community connections, compassionate dialogue and to hold space with people who have or are experiencing substance use.

The goal of this position is to gather stories and encourage empathetic listening spaces for people who want to create safer and equitable solutions. Through intentional action and thoughtful problem-solving, Zoe will weave together the various branches of this organization: emergency funding for people who need safe housing, counseling and peer support for people without insurance or financial stability, and community-based activism in the form of collective empowerment and capacity building.

Zoe has been working professionally in harm reduction since 2009. She has provided assistance and support to thousands of individuals looking to engage in naloxone distribution, safer drug use, overdose response and various harm reduction strategies. Zoe is a co-founder of the Maine Harm Reduction Alliance and the vice-president of the Maine Association of Recovery Residences for the Board of Directors. She also sits on the board of CAP Quality Care. She is a lead organizer of the Maine Harm Reduction Conference in collaboration with the University of New England’s Center for Excellence in Collaborative Education and she has provided trainings, presentations and assistance to a variety of social services agencies, treatment and recovery programs, medical providers and peer-led organizations. In 2021, she became the Director of Operations for the Church of Safe Injection, became an organizer with the Maine Peoples’ Housing Coalition and joined the Maine chapter of the Recovery Advocacy Project. She strives for equality and social justice for individuals, families and communities experiencing substance use and is actively engaged in amplifying the voices of Mainers experiencing poverty and homelessness. She lives in Portland with her husband, three children and eight pets.
