In light of our nation’s humble beginnings and Jesus’ call to embrace the stranger, the Office of Refugee Resettlement Services helps to ease human suffering and encourage the self-sufficiency of those newly arrived. We teach the American values of independence and individuality while supporting the tradition of a strong family unit.
Refugee Resettlement is an intensive venture that requires specialized care to encourage those newly arrived to assimilate, integrate, and participate in the bounty that America has to offer.
