Immigrant & Refugee Care
This track seeks to model servant leadership by supporting immigrant and refugee families and their children. We will encourage culturally relevant fellowship and identify community resources that strengthen the likelihood for success for families now residing in Dallas.
During our time together, a representative from Urban Strategies will speak on the Refugio Project and a representative from the New Immigration Forum will share about the Evangelical Immigration Table and Faith Rooted Advocacy.
Facilitators will lead a discussion time to identify, strengths, opportunities, aspirations and results. In order to connect leaders and their respective organizations/churches, we will use a Collaborative Space concept to define where the opportunities are to either exchange information, network or formalize partnerships.  We hope to attract faith based organizations and cross sector agencies which support Immigrant and Refugee Care related services.
World Vision North Texas will also invite 25 attendees to the Immigrant and Refugee Care track to join the World Vision Storehouse Subscription with a 25% discount (a $75 value).
Further information will be provided as it becomes available.
