NHSA and research and communications firm Fors Marsh have teamed up to promote connections between local Head Start programs and refugee communities. In addition to providing high-quality services to the families of eligible children in refugee communities, Head Start programs can facilitate community integration by connecting refugees to local resources and offering employment opportunities.

Attend this webinar to learn about new communications materials on The Hub that your Head Start program can use to connect with refugee communities. Materials include guides on how to engage local refugee organizations and how to enroll refugee children in Head Start.
