COMPREHENSIVE CASE MANAGEMENT FOR REFUGEES
A Long-Term Program with Lasting Results
During the first 90 days of resettlement, Catholic Charities will conduct an initial assessment of a refugee to determine his or her unique needs. Once this Reception & Placement period concludes, refugees will be referred to one of our ongoing case management programs where they can receive services for up to their first five years in the U.S.
These case management programs provide ongoing support that is designed specifically to help refugees become self-sufficient. The end goal is to equip these individuals with the tools needed to build confidence so that they can independently navigate life in their new county.
Refugee Support Services
Our refugee support services cover our walk-in case management services.
Walk-in services are offered twice a week. Services are first-come, first-served and do not require an appointment. During walk-in days, a staff member may help a refugee with daily tasks, such as scheduling a doctor’s appointment or understanding mail, as well as provide referrals to community partners.
Secondary intakes (refugees who have already arrived in the U.S. and who are relocating to Kansas) are also welcomed through this program.
“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me.”
Refugee Wellness Program
Our refugee wellness program is offered to our more vulnerable refugee populations. Individuals with disabilities, struggling single parents or refugees who have experienced extreme trauma are able to receive support through this program.
The program requires a one-year commitment, where a refugee is assigned to a specific case manager who helps them address barriers including complex health, financial or cultural adjustment needs. Those with mental health needs will also be enrolled in Psychosocial Services.

Refugees who have been in the country prior, who have family connections or are seeking employment in Kansas are able to be placed in our long-term, case management program. No matter where a refugee moved from in the U.S., Catholic Charities can assist him or her during a secondary intake.
