Often, unprecedented times call for innovation and bold actions. With the impending arrival of at Afghans last summer, Ascentria concluded that the best way to effectively resettle would be to tap into the power of local communities for help.
To mobilize the generous, caring public into a network of support, Ascentria has partnered with local communities and organizations to engage volunteers throughout Massachusetts and New Hampshire. By organizing Neighborhood Support Teams (NSTs), each comprised of 20-30 volunteers that are overseen by an Ascentria case manager, together we are creating a sustainable community-based model of resettlement.
Neighborhood Support Teams will be a crucial part of the support systems in place for Ukrainian arrivals in your community. Will you join in this effort?
