Our resettlement support areas include: 

  • Providing immediate essentials to refugee, migrant, and other newcomer families. 

  • Assisting families with school enrollment, ESL, and other education needs.

  • Coordinating household donations for newcomer family units.

  • Connecting newcomers to critical health, housing, and other support services.

  • Collaborating on community events, including resource fairs, cultural celebrations, and other social gatherings.
