Enhancing Services to Immigrants in an Uncertain Time

CWDA Conference/Symposium Presentation

Immigration continues to be a hot topic not only across California, but in the United States under the current federal climate. This workshop will explore some of the many efforts that various California government entities have taken on to combat the federal attacks on our vulnerable immigrant population. This workshop will provide insight on the efforts that some counties have undertaken to help better serve their immigrant populations in addition to exploring some of the local partnerships that counties have been able to utilize. The state Department of Social Services will also discuss and highlight the various efforts and resources at the state level that California has made available for our immigrant population.
