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.
