Director of Refugee & Immigrant Services Amy Weiss

Provides immediate services upon a refugee or immigrant’s arrival, as well as ongoing guidance as newcomers learn to live in a new country. Case managers and volunteers become an invaluable support system, helping families build community, 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.
