“The Immigrant Services Networking Mixer provides a unique opportunity for non-profits in the San Mateo County area to reach outside its four walls and start building community with like-minded non-profits and organizations that serve a similar population. I hope to see more events like this in the future!” - Jessica, North East Medical Services.
