  • UpdateDate: 2021.11.09      

To provide better services for new residents in Toufen City, a new community service location was established. The unveiling ceremony was held at 9 a.m., Sunday, October 24, 2021, in the Miaoli County Taiwan-Vietnam New Residents Caring Association (No.16, Liuhe 2nd Vil., Neighborhood 18, Xinhua Vil., Toufen City, Miaoli County) to serve new residents of the neighborhood.

 According to calculations by the National Conscription Agency, Ministry of the Interior, by the end of September 2021, 16,000 new residents were registering for marriage. Among them, there were 2,700 people in Toufen City - the township with the most new residents. Due to the differences in national conditions, traditions, and cultures, the problem of adaption often occurs after new residents come to live in Taiwan. In order to increase the social participation of new residents as well as social support networks, Miaoli County endeavors to get the New Residents Development Funds subsidy to establish the Miaoli County Service Center for New Resident Families. In addition, we are making an effort to encourage the Social and Family Affairs Administration, MOHW to set up 5 new service locations for new residents in Dahu, Zhunan, Gongguan, Sanyi, and Tongyuan districts using social welfare subsidies. Furthermore, to provide new residents in Toufen City with high-accessibility services, the Miaoli County Taiwan-Vietnam New Residents Caring Association has set up a sixth service location. Besides providing related services, multiple cultural communication activities are also held for new residents and their families to learn about and accept multi-culturalism.

  The service center’s opening hours are 9:00-13:00 on Mondays and 13:00-17:00 on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Welfare counseling, new resident care, interview, referrals, and the promotion of new resident activity projects are provided by the center. We hope that the establishment of the new service location can help and serve more new residents in local and adjacent areas.

 Miaoli County expects that the information owned by government agencies, schools, NGOs, and service centers for new immigrant families in Miaoli County will be linked and shared to continue cultivating new residents’ services and the care for the second generation in order to achieve individual, school, and community development. Besides this, we expect to cultivate the residents’ global vision by blending new foreign cultures with everyday living to generate more beautify through learning and communication. We also invite schools, clubs, and organizations that are interested in new resident affairs to participate in and infuse more energy.
