What We DoWhat We Do
Project Care Toolkit
We’ve created a digital toolkit to educate local organizations, leaders, and policymakers about the systemic barriers facing our immigrant and refugee communities and how COVID-19 has disproportionally impacted them. Our aim is to provide culturally sensitive solutions and tools that can improve existing services and policies to better serve our immigrant and refugee neighbors, who are essential to our communities.
"My wife and I recently made contact with the Immigrant Welcome Center of Indianapolis and following a very considerate conversation were able to effectively and efficiently be directed to the appropriate volunteer. We met with that person in a very short time and established a great professional relationship. The staff at the IWC offer and provide more than just a welcome to the city. They provide accurate information and helpful, sincere advice and guidance for the needs of the clients they serve. They offer true Hoosier hospitality to all who need the services provided. With their help, we were able to connect with a fluent Mandarin/English speaking volunteer who will be able to help us in the future. We sincerely appreciate the services we have received."
"About 17 years ago I got on a plane from Colombia and moved to Indianapolis. Before learning English, graduating from college, and landing a job at the Marion County Health Department I worked at a warehouse where I met many other Latino immigrants.
They told me their stories, their journey, and what they went through and the struggle to get to the United States. I didn’t have to go through that to get here and I realized how blessed I was, That's when I decided I needed to give back and help my community."
