New Arrivals Institute (NAI)

House Calls for A Healthier Community

NAI staff members pose with their arms raised in excitement.

To better serve its refugee community, New Arrivals Institute (NAI) in Greensboro, NC has successfully implemented an at-home visit program that provides health services, including vaccination education. NAI’s Refugee Health Promotion team developed this program to benefit those in the community — namely women at home with young children — who aren’t able to come to the NAI facilities for regular health outreach events. During these scheduled home visits, NAI team members can provide one-on-one education on health and wellness, and share accurate information about COVID-19 and flu vaccinations and where to obtain them. By reaching mostly mothers who are frequently responsible for decisions about family health, the at-home program has been very successful in increasing vaccine uptake in the NAI community.
