Ethnic Community Based Organizations

Ethnic Community Based Organizations (ECBOs) are community based organizations, comprised primarily of refugees, for the specific purpose of providing assistance to other refugees. The ECBOs provide services such as English language training,youth development, employment counseling, social adjustment services, cultural preservation and information, referral services, and address unique cultural needs of that community. These organizations provide a vital link to avenues of assistance for refugees.  See the ECBO fact sheet for more on their role and responsibilities.

In addition, these organizations coordinate County Refugee Forum meetings throughout the state to discuss the issues and concerns of the refugee population in an effort to develop solutions for implementing services for successful refugee resettlement.
