Abstract

This article explores, from a practitioner's point of view, some of the challenges and learning opportunities that occur when organizations partner-up to meet the needs of refugees. This article also highlights the factors that have contributed to the success of a seven-year "service partnership." The author proposes that the process to establish the partnership is as important as the actual service delivery. The commitment and investment of time and resources are essential requirements for the sustainability of a collaborational approach to providing services for refugees.
