Services to Advance Community Integration of Central American Migrants: Lessons from the DC and Houston Metropolitan Areas

On Wednesday, June 27, researchers from American University's Center for Latin American & Latino Studies and the University of Houston presented their preliminary findings from a joint initiative examining the impact of Central American migration on U.S. communities. Based on data collected from over 120 interviews with community stakeholders and services providers in the Washington, DC and Houston metropolitan areas, as well as in the Carolinas, the discussion highlighted how local governments and nonprofit community-based organizations are addressing the legal, education, health, and social services needs of child and family migrants from Central America.
