With support from the WES Mariam Assefa Fund, ACS-Metropolis Institute began
leading a two-year national action research project entitled Envisioning the Future of the
Immigrant-Serving Sector. In January 2021 ACS-Metropolis began conducting nationwide
research to discover how to strengthen the sector so that can be more responsive,
collaborative, innovative and sustainable. We identified actionable solutions by engaging
service providers, newcomers, policymakers, employers and other settlement sector
stakeholders through a mixed-method research approach.
