Challenge

Refugees experience higher poverty and PTSD rates, more legal hurdles, lack of familiarity with resources, language barriers, and are more likely to be employed as essential workers -- factors that worsen the health and mental health threats of COVID-19.

Solution

Children's Aid will provide our refugee families with COVID-19 testing and treatment options, health and mental health care, food assistance, emergency relief, legal aid, translation and resource navigation services, and academic supports. These critical services could save lives, and help avoid the spread of the virus throughout New York City.

Long-Term Impact

This project will help the dozens of refugee families we serve in New York City remain healthy and stay informed throughout this pandemic, and will ensure that their citizenship application process continues smoothly.
