Welcome Toledo-Lucas County (Welcome TLC) recently received a Gateways for Growth Challenge award for their work in welcoming and helping immigrants to integrate into our region. Gateways for Growth, a national organization which has created a competitive opportunity for public and private sector efforts to be rewarded for enhancing immigrant experiences, recognized the organization’s research, matching grants, and technical assistance. Welcome TLC Co-Chairs Mechelle Zarou and Reem Subei are pleased with the news, adding that “this is another step in Welcome TLC’s leadership in including Toledo-Lucas County’s small but growing and diverse immigrant population.”
