Refugee service providers can play a vital role during the COVID-19 pandemic to foster equity of access to home-based learning.
Switchboard provides free, personalized technical assistance to refugee service providers
This includes staff of state agencies, resettlement agencies and affiliates, ethnic community-based organizations, and others in the United States who currently receive funding from the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR). We provide remote technical assistance using web-based platforms, and, when feasible, may also deliver in-person training.
