The Focus: Refugee families with general needs such as rental assistance, employment referrals, food, clothing, medical assistance, and furniture.
The Model: On a case-by-case basis, needs are assessed to determine type of assistance, amount needed, and duration.
The Impact: When government assistance ends after 5-8 months of arrival, most refugees are not yet ready for self-sufficiency; but some are almost there. This program is designed for those that need assistance for just a little longer before achieving financial independence. These families face short-term or basic obstacles on their path to self-sufficiency, and do not require intensive case management to reach their goal.
