April 15 Webinar
COVID-19 has swept across the globe and has had a devastating impact on families and the economy. As we continue to be gripped by this novel virus, community leaders are gathering whatever resources are available to all communities, especially the immigrant and refugee communities. Find out how our communities have been responding to this crisis.
We will connect with our community through work that is done in schools, refugee resettlement agencies, migrant
farmworker programs, health departments, clinics, hospitals and other community-based programs.
We believe that meeting the needs of immigrant and refugee communities requires dynamic collaborations across service settings and disciplines – and that the time is right for this network to grow new ideas and solutions that work for our communities.
A Network for Learning & Action
Kansas City has launched a new learning network — Communities Concerned for Immigrants and Refugees — open to health,
social services other community members interested in strengthening the health and well-being refugee and immigrant communities.
To that end we strive to become a recognized welcoming community for all who live in the Greater Kansas City area.
We invite you to participate in a learning network for organizations working to support better health and well-being for immigrant and refugee families in the KC metro area.
