Through extensive training and experience in the particular dynamics that influence the lives of immigrants and refugees, the agency works diligently to engage immigrants, connect cultures, and build community with a vision for a thriving community that everyone can call home. We focus our work on both reducing the burden that individuals and families experience when immigrating to our community and improving local community awareness and understanding of the immigrant experience and benefits to the area.
