There Are Many Ways to Help Refugees In Your Community
Volunteers are vital to the success of RRO's ESL, Employment, and Resettlement programs. Clients often need one-on-one assistance to develop their English skills, work on their resumes, and organize their small businesses. While RRO staff respond to numerous program demands, volunteers help provide this one-on-one assistance. Volunteers are a valuable resource to RRO and our clients. Time and energy contributed by our volunteers are critical to our organization's success. We match each volunteer's skills to a program's needs to create unique, productive volunteer opportunities. Our volunteers are students, local community members, and other refugees. All are encouraged to apply.
Refugee Resettlement Office does not ask for fees for most of the servies we provide. We depend on the generosity of individuals in the community, like you, to provide items for people in need and much less fortunate than most folks. We accept most usable household items. Some of the most requested items are furniture, such as beds, tables and couches. Refugee Resettlement Office is also happy to accept financial donations. All Financial Donations assist our office in covering overhead costs, purchasing food, clothing and furniture for our clients, and assisting in expanding our services.
Employ a Refugee
For refugees, finding a job in the US job market can be a daunting task. Many refugees have high qualifications and extensive experience. Our job development team teaches job search skills, American workplace culture, and partners with other organizations to create job placements. As an employer, we can offer pre-screened employees to meet your hiring needs.
