Sanctuary State Training for CPS & Self-Sufficiency Workers
A state-wide education initiative for DHS workers. As state employees in a sanctuary state, many DHS employees have requested education and information around the current policies and practices related to sanctuary status. In collaboration with the DHS Office of Equity and Inclusion, Catholic Charities provides training to DHS workers around immigration and refugee laws, status issues faced by families and the role of workers in supporting individuals and families affected by immigration. To date, over 550 DHS workers around the state have been trained around this issue.
