Project Summary

This poster presentation shows how MSW intern, Darlene Fitkin, and her agency, Apostolic Pentecosta Church (APC) contacted another agency, Hope4Healing to help an immigrant family that was caught up in the immigration system. The immigrant family applied for asylum and had no work permit. Their sponsor left the state, leaving this family homeless and without a means of support. As an intern, Darlene and two agencies, APC and Hope4Healing, helped bring more than 21 other agencies in Cedar Valley and UNI students, together to help find a home, medical needs, food, clothing for this family. The process started with a French teacher, from UNI, volunteering her time, to help the Darlene and agency she was under, understand the French speaking family's needs.
