Supporting Our Immigrant and Refugee Communities   Sep 12  In the current political landscape, it is more important than ever to make sure that we, as service providers, are re-evaluating the needs of our immigrant and refugee communities and are able to pivot to make sure that we are able to deliver the best level of services to our community members. With more fear, risk, and changes given the constant changes in rules, regulations, and lived experiences, the need to gather and disseminate information, update education for our staff, and evaluate what services we provide is critical.  Presenter; Meg Allen

Family Resource Center Association (FRCA), in collaboration with OMNI Institute and the University of Colorado, Boulder, recently had a study published that validates the reliability of the Colorado Family Support Assessment 2.0 (CFSA 2.0), a tool that can be used by family support professionals for managing cases and measuring progress.  The results of the study indicate that with training, staff members are able to use the CFSA 2.0 in a reliable way to measure family progress.  Click HERE to see the abstract, or download the full manuscript HERE.  Email FRCA's Rachel Shuck ( for information about CFSA 2.0 training.
