Immigrant Integration

Immigrant Integration engages stakeholders from both the newcomer and receiving communities with an aim to promote health and full participation of New Americans in community life.


"Immigrant integration is a two-way process in which newcomers and receiving
communities work together to build secure, vibrant, and cohesive communities"-GCIR

The work of the Initiative:
  • Identifies and make accessible culturally and linguistically appropriate health and medical information in order to improve health services for new Americans
  • Develops a trained volunteer force to increase healthcare access and promote self sufficiency among the newcomer community
  • Provides support to navigate medical systems, ensures successful connections to services, provides specialized information and referral and outreach to the refugee community
  • Promotes and facilitates links with NH's Health Professional Opportunity Program (HPOP)
  • Supports newly-arriving individuals to successfully navigate the healthcare system and to follow through on provider directives
