Family Empowerment

The Family Empowerment program assists families in making successful transitions to life in the U.S. and integrating into American society.

Refugees and immigrants face numerous barriers that prevent them from accessing mainstream public services including limited English proficiency, lack job-related skills, and unfamiliarity with U.S. cultural practices and systems.

ReWA’s bilingual case managers work one-on-one with clients to break down these barriers, restore hope, and help them thrive in the U.S.

Services include

  • Basic Food education and application assistance
  • Information and referrals to help families access resources such as healthcare, government benefits, and childcare
  • Assistance navigating American systems such as school enrollment and applying for a driver’s license
  • Interpretation and advocacy
  • Workshops to provide newcomers with information about services, health and nutrition, and financial literacy
