Office of Multi-Cultural Services
New Americans bring a myriad of languages, cultures and skills that create a vibrant multicultural environment, but that often create challenges in understanding the complexity of government programs. They must learn to communicate in English and understand values that sometimes conflict with their own.
This office connects immigrants and refugees to resources and services in 32 languages offered by the county and our community partners.
Clients can access services from 13 community sites.
We also manage the Hennepin County cultural speakers' bureau which informs county workers about the ways culture affects the daily lives of our clients.
