Community Connect

Connecting. Empowering. Advocating

As a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Immigrant Welcome Center has launched a new program called Community Connect. This program focuses on three main initiatives which include: Connecting with immigrants through our network of Natural Helper volunteers, conducting virtual wellness checks on vulnerable families, and supplying immigrants with a hotline available in 200+ languages; Empowering our community partners by facilitating weekly Partner Power calls to discuss the challenges facing immigrants and address service gaps; Advocating to local policy makers by utilizing data gathered from our own clients and findings reported during the Partner Power calls to ensure that humanitarian aid is reaching immigrants.

Each week we will be publishing a Community Connect Report that highlights the information we've gathered from our immigrant clients. Click on the link below to download a copy of our latest issue.
