Covid-19's Impact on Refugees in U.S..

The Covid-19 pandemic created unprecedented challenges for resettled refugees in the U.S. and exposed underlying vulnerabilities that particularly impact refugee women and children, as well as the organizations that work to support them. The authors examine the difficulties facing refugees in the U.S. and offer policy recommendations that may help them. 

This brief is part of a series on the impact of Covid-19 on vulnerable families. The other reports focus on low-income mothers; undocumented immigrants in the United States; and the effects of parental stress on the developing brains of children.
