Refugee Resettlement – Building CommunityBisharoHiltonInternship

In helping to create a home-away-from-home, we assist government-approved refugees in becoming self-sufficient through cultural orientation, job development, family reunification and resettlement. We assist newcomers approved by the federal government in securing housing, food, clothing and other necessities, accessing experienced social workers, gaining jobs, life and language skills and otherwise assimilating into the nation’s fourth largest city.
