by RAICES - Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services
The R&P program is the initial and core program welcoming refugees to the United States.
RAICES provides refugees with furnished housing, transportation and interpretation services, and Cultural orientation classes while connecting clients to supportive services including healthcare, education, and English classes. Referrals for benefits and employment opportunities are offered as well.
Our trauma informed case management services are provided to all of our newcomers during the first 90 days from arrival. RAICES staff work in partnership with volunteers, social service providers, local faith-based groups and many community partners and employers to welcome and support refugees in their new home. RAICES is an affiliate of the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI).
Eligible populations: Refugees and Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) holders.
