Arkansas Support Network is pleased to announce the hire of Albious Latior as Outreach Coordinator for Marshallese Families. Mr. Latior has worked in several capacities for the Marshallese in Northwest Arkansas, most lately for the Jones Center for Families in Springdale. Arkansas Support Network has a federal grant from the Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs, to provide information and training to families who have children who receive special education services and those whose children are eligible for these services. One of the areas of focus for this grant is immigrant families, particularly Hispanic and Marshallese.
Lynn Donald, Director of the Family Support Program for ASN, says “we are pleased to have Mr. Latior’s experience and his contacts within the Marshallese community to help us as we strive to reach out to Marshallese families with children who have disabilities.“ Mr. Latior will work in the offices of ASN in the Jones Family Resource Center on Emma St. He can be contacted by calling 479-225-0883 or by emailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
