Brooks LIP Mission:
Uniting Voices of Organizations with Voices of Experience to build community value.
Brooks LIP Vision:
Where newcomers experience successful integration through belonging and contributing to the economic, cultural, social, and civic growth of the community.
Becoming Brooks LIP:
In September 2015, following over 5 years of informal conversation between community partners, Brooks LIP became a reality. Partners joined together with the initial goal of ensuring that Brooks is a place where newcomers and immigrants are welcomed, valued, and are able to fully participate in the community.
The Brooks Local Immigration Partnership is built on existing networks and coalitions and seeks to support ongoing collaboration and information sharing, guided by those who have firsthand experience as newcomers. Their stories and wisdom will be used to ground our work.
