Slide Deck: Leveraging Schools to Support Benefits Access for Immigrant Communities

For decades, the Catholic Charities USA (CCUSA) network has been a national leader in both refugee resettlement and legal immigration. Their “Border is Everywhere” program supports access to wraparound services that promote the healthy integration and wellbeing of our newest neighbors as they start their lives in the United States. During this session, participants heard from five expert speakers who shared valuable strategies on engaging with immigrant families to enhance access to and participation in federal nutrition benefits within schools. Whether you are an educator, community organizer, and/or advocate, this session provided you with replicable, scalable and sustainable approaches to boost access and participation in federal nutrition benefits programs for immigrant communities.
