Resources

ImmigrantInfo has created a searchable database with hundreds of links to websites which we believe are of interest to immigrants, their advocates, researchers, ESL students and ESL teachers. As a rule, our resource links are non-political and non-commercial in nature. We have assigned multiple categories to every link to assist you in narrowing down to the relevant links you are looking for. We've included a text search where you can specific keywords or phrases that are located in the Name or Description of the listing. We encourage your feedback on the database content and categories.

  • Mix and match selection criteria.
  • Entering a Keyword/Phrase will search for an EXACT MATCH in the Name or Description. You can add multiple words or phrases by separating them with a comma (i.e. If you enter "community center, multi-language", only resources that have both "community center" and "multi-language" will be found).
  • As you add more criteria, the number of Resources Found will be reduced.

  • Disclaimer: ImmigrantInfo.org does not endorse any service or organization included in our Resources database. We are not responsible for any data inaccuracies or omissions. The user assumes all risks related to any misinformation. ImmigrantInfo.org welcomes input to help keep our database current.

    10 Facts About Access to Health Insurance for Immigrants and Their Families
    11/19/19 The Trump Administration’s ongoing efforts to restrict immigration is increasing fear and confusion among immigrants and their families. According to reports, enrollment is declining among immigrants and their families who are eligible for health insurance affordability programs (including Medicaid, the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), and ACA marketplace coverage with tax credits/subsidies). Last year, one in seven adults in immigrant families reported avoiding public benefits out of fear. Nearly half of community health centers report that, during the past year, immigrant patients declined to enroll themselves in Medicaid. And nearly 40 percent of health centers report parents have declined coverage for their children. Key Words: ALLIES4

    A Grown-Up’s Guide to Using Technology with Young Children
    2019 The Center for Early Learning at Silicon Valley Community Foundation has partnered with Common Sense Media, the leading independent nonprofit organization dedicated to helping kids thrive in a world of media and technology, to create this resource. It was created to be a resource that recognized that technology will be used with young children in today’s complex world of different household makeups – from multiple generations living under the same roof, to single parents working more than one job, to stay-at-home parents caring for multiple children all day long, to friends and relatives acting as a child’s primary caregiver . We recognize that the confusion and challenges surrounding using technology with young children (for the purpose of this guide, from birth through age 8) vary widely depending on the child’s age, so we divided the guide into sections based on age brackets: 0-2, 3-5 and 6-8.
