Immigrant Services


Immigrant Services Program

The New York State Office for New Americans has established a new program to localize leadership throughout New York State with a focus on providing accurate and reliable information to low-income immigrant and refugee communities. Additionally, these ONA Community Navigators will be leading local roundtable discussions with traditional and non-traditional immigration allies, workforce development programs, community conversations to build bridges and relationships between communities, and navigator trainings to enhance advocacy and organizational skills.
