The University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service is offering people a chance to learn more about a home for refugees in Northwest Arkansas next week.

The school plans a noon discussion Tuesday at Sturgis Hall, 1200 President Clinton Ave. in Little Rock, about Canopy Northwest Arkansas, a group that works to support refugees who have resettled to that area.

The resettlement center provides housing, assistance with school enrollment, language classes, and access to doctors, lawyers, counselors and babysitters.

“Canopy will help refugees learn English, put together a resume, evaluate their degree, and prepare for the American workforce,” according to a news release.

All events also are streamed live on the school’s website.
