Reception & Placement

The Reception and Placement program is a 3-month welcoming program, providing newly arrived refugees with core standards needed to begin re-building their lives in the U.S.

The Reception and Placement program is a vital part of our commitment to refugees starting their new lives in the United States. We take pride in extending a warm and supportive welcome to refugees who have received approval for admission under the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program. Our dedicated team of R&P Case Managers ensure that newcomers receive essential services, including safe housing, access to necessities, and expert guidance to help them adapt to their new surroundings.

We understand that the journey to self-sufficiency begins with meeting basic needs and feeling secure. That’s why we work closely with both public and private organizations to provide personalized support, making certain that individuals receive the care and resources they require. By fostering a warm and inclusive atmosphere and offering practical assistance, we empower refugees to not just survive, but to thrive and build bright, promising futures in their new communities.
