Traumatic Impacts of Community Violence, COVID-19, and Civil Unrest on Immigrant Families

NCTSN Resource

Resource Description

Focuses on current challenges and recommendations for addressing the needs of young immigrant children, youth and families; highlighting the importance of community partnership, early childhood protections; addressing substance use and its effects, as well as faith based supportive approaches. The COVID-19 pandemic, along with severe immigration enforcement policies in recent years, and historical and present structural inequities have all had a disproportionate impact on BIPOC communities, including marginalized immigrant populations in the US. This has resulted in increased risk factors, including decreased access to financial, technological, social, educational and healthcare resources resulting in an increasing risk of infection, family separation and loss, trauma exposure and victimization.
