The Warroad Lao Engagement Project from the Lao Assistance Center of Minnesota seeks to build stronger connections between the Warroad Lao community (representing ~8.5% of Warroad’s population) and local systems of support (i.e., schools, clinics, county human services, law enforcement, etc.) to ensure opportunities for economic, civic and social participation are within everyone’s reach. This project will establish a Lao Parent Council to plan and implement strategies that increase Lao engagement in services and systems; and create a part-time Lao/English-speaking Navigator position in Warroad.
