The invisible work of family, friend, and neighbor caregivers and its importance for immigrant and dual language learner families [Executive summary]


This policy brief discusses the importance and benefits of FFN care for immigrant and DLL communities and the barriers that FFN care providers serving these communities face in accessing subsidies and other resources. Based on desk research and interviews with representatives of community-based organizations (CBOs) supporting FFN providers and other experts conducted in 2021, the brief points to policy implications as well as promising practices and policies from several states that could be expanded and replicated to effectively support immigrant-serving FFN care providers and the many families they work with.
