Refugee Assistance and Immigration Services (Catholic Social Services)
Refugee Assistance & Immigration Services (RAIS) provides a bridge for refugees (individuals who have had to flee their countries of origin due to the tragedies of persecution and war) from their former life experiences to the new skills required for success in the United States. Through a focus on economic self-sufficiency, community integration, and a respect for unique cultures, history and traditions, RAIS creates an environment of compassion and encouragement for refugees to flourish.
During the 2017 fiscal year:
RAIS resettled 98 new arrivals.
90% of all employable adults engaged in RAIS were gainfully employed, and 89% of these retained their initial employment for more than 3 months.
