Immigrants & Refugees

Supporting efforts for fully integrated, more inclusive societies

At TCC Group we believe that immigrants and refugees are integral to the health and vibrancy of our communities.

The organizations and networks with which we work share this belief—and thus share our commitment to supporting the advancement of rights, dignity, and empowerment for all immigrants and refugees.

Some of our partners fund advocates and activists who are working to improve legal protections and promote policy change. Others facilitate access to vital services, such as education, housing assistance, and healthcare for immigrants and refugees in need of support.

In all cases, we help partners collaborate with diverse stakeholders to plan, implement, and evaluate projects that leverage available resources and align shared goals to expand opportunities for all.

“We were trying to meet a need in a fairly urgent moment … and trying to build really fast for a crisis. TCC Group found a lot of strength in the `{`Emergent Fund`}` model. Sharing that with our funders built confidence in how we were approaching the work and brought resources in the door that we might not have had otherwise … Larger foundations are now looking to the Emergent Fund as a vehicle for their rapid-response work in moments like the family separations crisis at the border.”

At all stages of work—designing a complex initiative, embarking on an organizational change in direction, or creating a suite of materials—strategic communication is essential. We create communication plans that make your voice heard, identifying your messages, messengers, audiences, and channels.
