Nonprofit, Community and Faith Organizations: Key Partners for Integration
10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Community and faith organizations lend themselves as a bridge for immigrants to be introduced to the mainstream of society. They act as advocates and representatives to promote newcomers’ civic and political engagement and serve as channels through which funders, government agencies, and elected officials can reach immigrants. These organizations double as social service providers at no or low cost and partner with other organizations to build networks that support immigrants and the community in general.
