Thank You!

Thank you for joining us for the Neighborhood Exchange Series - Community Anchors: The Social Services Response to the Migrant Crisis. The social services sector exists to care for the most vulnerable among us, which has included the massive influx of migrants who have arrived over the last year and a half. As our panelists shared, there is much healing work to do, both for our newest arrivals and our longtime residents, and we hope you feel as equipped and inspired as we do to continue the work of reshaping our systems to benefit everyone.
