Why Case Management Matters

Due to persecution or war, a refugee must flee his or her homeland. When a refugee arrives in the U.S., very little comes with them. Refugees leave behind homes, families, jobs and most of their belongings. In addition to losing the life they once knew, this sudden evacuation can leave behind triggering memories and lasting trauma. Our Case Management services help refugees acclimate to their new home while navigating these significant life changes.
