Integration for Continuing Success

Supporting individuals and families as they build lives they are proud of in theirnew communities.

Through individually-tailored case management and group programming, integration programs ensure new neighbors have the tools they need to navigate complex systems like health care, achieve personal and professional goals, and build critical community connections to thrive and belong.


Economic Empowerment

Economic Empowerment programs support new neighbors on their journey to financial self-sufficiency and fulfilling employment, from initial job readiness support like ESL, resume building, and connections to initial employment to ongoing case management support for career upskilling and advancement for up to five years after arrival. CWS Lancaster Employment Specialists support clients throughout their job search process, assist them in securing job placements and provide ongoing supports to ensure job retention and career advancement.


Health & Family Wellness

Health & Family Wellness programs provide additional support to newcomers who are either experiencing extra challenges or who are interested in pursuing longer-term goals related to their integration in the community. Our case management and health navigation programs support those with ongoing vulnerabilities affecting their stability, while our Youth Mentoring and Good Job, Happy Family programs help neighbors of all ages pursue financial empowerment, career or academic success, and community engagement.


Home Study, Post Release Services

Home Study, Post Release Services case managers work with unaccompanied children and their sponsors as they are reunited after the children are released from Office of Refugee Resettlement shelters. Just like refugees and asylum seekers, many unaccompanied children have fled violence and threats to their well-being in their home countries, undertaking dangerous journeys to seek safety in the United States. And just like all young people, they want to go to school, make friends, and pursue their dreams within a safe and loving home. Together, sponsors, children, and case managers create an action plan and identify goals to support the child's safety, rights, and needs.
