Idaho Conference on Refugees - Creating Connection
We are pleased to have been invited to present at the Idaho Conference on Refugees 2023. We will be presenting a workshop titled "Invisible Barriers to Integration & Best Practices in Belonging" on Thursday, February 23rd at 10:30-11:45 AM. Resettlement is only the first step in the journey of integration where concerns of housing, food security, transportation, language acquisition, and employment can hamper a smooth transition, impact mental health, and exacerbate issues of personal identity. We will share learnings using firsthand accounts and best-practice models as to how communities can assist refugee neighbors overcome systemic barriers and experience acceptance, belonging, and self-worth.
