Multicultural Community Engagement

Welcome!

Multicultural Community Engagement provides access to resources, key information and a variety of engagement opportunities to the diverse population of multicultural, immigrant and refugee residents who call Henrico County home. Individuals and community partners are encouraged to come here to learn about – and find – the services, support and access residents are entitled to receive throughout the county. 

Whether you are new to the county or a long-time resident, it is helpful to have trusted relationships and resources to improve your experiences. By prioritizing language access through interpretation services and translation, we are focused on building strong county-community partnerships. 

Please visit often and share the many offerings and opportunities to stay engaged with your Henrico County.
