MLOV works with more than 350 immigrant women, youth, and families in DC, building deep relationships with them that often span multiple generations. The ongoing housing crisis and inflation have hit this community hard–over 75% of MLOV parents are unemployed and many lack access to basic resources like food and diapers. Through its wraparound services, families receive assistance to obtain the social services they need. Educational, career, and leadership training build parents’ skills so they can match with job opportunities while Know Your Rights presentations equip them to negotiate for better workplace conditions. In youth-led programming, some 140 refugee and immigrant youth co-create the academic, civic, and leadership activities they want to engage in after school and over the summer. For MLOV, empowerment means community members lead the change they want to see.
