“BASIC has been invaluable to me in my work to resettle Afghan evacuees in Berkshire County. Their collective institutional knowledge has allowed me to spend my time helping evacuees rather than researching resources. Through BASIC I can also let immigrant organizations know about the needs of our Afghan evacuees and refugee clients. Berkshire County is so lucky to have BASIC as a resource to serve our communities.”
