Service providers working with vulnerable populations often encounter children and families who have immigrated to the United States from other countries. Having a basic knowledge of immigration terminology and laws, and where to locate resources, can be essential to effective service delivery. During this presentation, we will discuss the current reality of immigration policy, equip ourselves with resources to assist our clients, and engage in experiential activities to promote our capacity to assist families who may be living in precarious circumstances. This broad overview should serve as an opportunity for community providers to enhance helping capacity while also promoting community conversation surrounding this relevant social issue.
