Home visiting services for refugee, immigrant, migrant, and dual language learner families

Description:

Thousands of refugees and asylum seekers come to the United States each year to escape humanitarian crises in their home countries. Some face hurdles to accessing services, including language barriers, incomplete documentation, and ineligibility for public programs. Immigrant families often face similar barriers while also fearing deportation or other unintended consequences if they seek help. Home visiting services can support refugee and immigrant families in engaging with others, coping with trauma, and accessing community resources and services. Access to services, in turn, may help offset concerns such as food and housing insecurity and negative health and educational outcomes. This Innovation Roundup Brief spotlights five home visiting programs using innovative, strengths-based practices to reach and serve refugee, immigrant, migrant, and dual language learner families: Welcome Baby; North Range Behavioral Health Family Connects Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters; ParentChild+ at Jericho Road Community Health Center; Baby TALK at RefugeeOne Wellness Program; Baby TALK at Community Consolidated School District 146 Bridges Birth to Three Program.
