Having fled poverty, persecution, and war, refugees, asylees, and other immigrants often arrive in the United States with high hopes of building a better life for themselves and their children.
Upon arrival, and even after several months or years, many immigrants continue to face a staggering number of challenges as they seek to rebuild their lives. Not only do some families have many tangible needs to meet, such as housing, transportation, employment, and health care, but they also face a number of intangible challenges as they learn to navigate a foreign culture, far away from their friends and family. Many struggle with feelings of isolation, despair, anxiety, and depression.
World Relief’s extended case management is designed to help individuals overcome these barriers so they can not only survive, but thrive, in their new home.
