Connecting immigrants with the community.
Stronger, more united communities.
Immigrant families began joining the Stevens County community in the early 2000s, many moving to the area for work opportunities in local agricultural and manufacturing companies. Over the years as the number of immigrants increased, both local and immigrant community members came together to create an organization that could address the changes our community is going through. Conexiones was founded in 2017 to support new families as they learn how to navigate a new country and to bridge cultural divides within Stevens County. The ultimate goal of our work is to build a stronger, more united community.
All of our work and services fit into the following 4 focus areas:
- Relocation Services: Provide resources and information for new immigrants in Stevens County. When new families arrive, we invite them to fill out a form to identify their needs and to help facilitate a smooth transition.
- Hospitals/Health Care: Coordinate with hospitals and public health to help familiarize immigrants with healthcare services. Support healthy living through physical and emotional wellness programs.
- Schools: Facilitate communication across language and cultural barriers at local schools
- Community Activities: Host community activities that help educate new families and connect the Stevens County community.
