Description of Resource

This resource examines school-community connections in general and "community schools" specifically.  Community schools typically focus on providing comprehensive, integrated services for students and families through partnerships with community agencies.  Refugee-serving agencies may be interested in learning about this model as it has the potential for strengthening refugee families and communities.
