2022 CCCS Refugee Resettlement Summer Volunteers (Lower Manhattan)
The Refugee Resettlement department of Catholic Charities Community Services provides assistance to refugees, asylees, SIVs, Cuban/Haitian entrants, certified victims of trafficking, and unaccompanied minors from diverse backgrounds. The department offers case management, employment-based, and educational services that help clients feel secure in their new community.
To further help us with this goal, we are looking to bring on volunteers who are interested in engaging in our office functions while interacting one-on-one with clients to help them work towards self-sufficiency. Volunteers are able to work with a diverse, multicultural staff and client population, gain insights into the challenges that refugees/asylees face, provide a service to the office that is integral in the resettlement process, and learn more about non-profit programming and management.
