Director of Refugee Services Blythe Raphael

Provides initial refugee resettlement as well as ongoing guidance as newcomers learn to live and be successful in a new country. Case managers and volunteers become an invaluable support system, helping families build community, find jobs and housing, navigate the health care system, and much more. Well-trained staff deals with issues related to the effects of war, relocation, conflicting cultural values, and differing child-rearing practices.
