Mi Refugio is La Clinica's school-based program in Hyattsville, MD. Staff from our Mental Health department work directly with newcomers in high school who have recently arrived within the last two years. The program is a collaboration with the Transforming Neighborhoods Initative @ Schools.
The program started during the 2015-2016 school year and has successfully reached hundreds of students to assist with navigation in school, college preparation, scholarship application assistance, summer enrichment opportunities, and case management. The program currently serves approximately 180 students.
