Preparedness and Response

[sta_anchor id=”AdvocateResources”]
  • Emergency Preparedness for Immigrants: workshop presentation in English or Spanish, to slice, dice, or lift in its entirety. Workshops should include at least one hour post-presentation to support participants in developing individual emergency plans and distributing emergency kits to  participating households.
  • Disaster Preparedness Videos, from The Alliance. Vietnamese, Spanish, French, Burmese, Lingala, Arabic, Pashto, and Dari.
  • AccessHOU.org: An open source database of social services for agencies working with immigrants in Greater Houston. During emergencies that HILSC responds to, AccessHOU will go into Emergency Mode — indicated by a yellow bar at the top of the page. In this mode, public edits will skip verification and go straight to the database. Please update changes in programs/services due to emergencies, and they will be confirmed post-emergency.
  • Immigrants Resource Hotline: find timely and accurate information about changing immigration policies, report discrimination and racial profiling, and locate referrals to legal service providers and immigrant rights organizers.

Data: Reports, White Papers, and Articles
