Preferred Communities Intensive Case Management Program (PC)
PC supports individual clients who are navigating an intensive medical or well-being need or experiencing a challenging life event within 5 years of arrival to the U.S. This program provides 1:1 support, working alongside the enrolled client and in partnership, as we develop a goal plan aimed at addressing current areas of instability, which may include healthcare navigation, ESL learning support, mental well-being needs and referral support, etc. While most clients are enrolled for 1 year, the program supports individuals requiring at least 6 months of extended support.
Good Job, Happy Family Program (GJHF)
GJHF is a holistic, family-based program for refugees (and other Office of Refugee Resettlement populations). Case managers and families collaborate to design a strengths-based plan for participants to take steps toward long-term integration goals around education, English-language learning, career training, housing, transportation, and financial literacy. The program serves families with children 18 years or younger who are within 1-3 years of arrival to the U.S and lasts for up to 1 year.
Career Pathways supports Afghan newcomers to move beyond the entry-level workforce and set a trajectory towards a professional career in the U.S. that aligns with their backgrounds and goals. Participants work one-on-one with a career navigator to develop a plan based on their skills, experience, and interests and then work closely with that navigator to identify next steps, which may include ESL classes, enrollment in training programs, or professional mentorship. The program provides support for up to 3 years as participants pursue their short-, medium-, and long-term goals for moving ahead in the U.S. workforce.
The Youth Mentoring Program engages refugee youth between the ages of 15 and 24 in identifying and working towards their own educational and vocational goals and achieving them through committed and positive mentorship, social connections with peers, and community engagement.
