PNSG is supporting the settlement sector in its efforts to effectively respond to the needs of Syrian refugees. We are working on compiling a list of current services and programs that could be used by Syrian refugees and identify gaps in services to help us get a better understanding of the information and support needed by service providers, community groups and private sponsors to better serve them.

Please set aside 10 minutes of your time to fill out the online survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/5L6HTKR.  We appreciate your assistance and look forward to receiving your response by January 8, 2016. Information to be collected from this survey will be shared widely by end of January. 

If you have any questions regarding the survey, please email Esel Panlaqui at EPanlaqui@unitedwaypeel.org
