IMMIGRANTS MAKE COLUMBUS

The City of Columbus is the 14th largest city in the United States and growing. Currently, ten percent of the city’s residents are foreign born and this number is only expected to rise. The leading contributing factor behind population growth in Central Ohio are immigrants and refugees and Columbus is expected to grow by 1 million people by the year 2050.

From starting businesses and creating jobs, to enriching our culture and bringing new ideas, immigrants are a vital part of our community. By hearing directly from our residents, we can build a more just and inclusive society where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.

New Americans Project: Assessing The Human Service Landscape in Central Ohio

The City of Columbus has always strived to be an open, inclusive, and welcoming city to many New American populations from all over the globe. The New Americans Project was commissioned by the Columbus City Council. The Ohio State University College of Social Work was tasked to conduct an in-depth assessment of needs and capacity of the human service landscape—formal, informal, and volunteer services—available in central Ohio for New Americans to bolster the New Americans Initiative led by the City of Columbus.
