The resettlement services are offered to refugees for a ninety-day period and are funded by the Office of Refugee Resettlement on a per capita basis. From ninety days to a five year period, funding for employment and English as a second language services are provided by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania via Lutheran Children & Family Services. These are the services which have been needed to guide the refugees to self-sufficiency. Immigration services are provided for a nominal fee. Income from these components allow for employment of both a full-time and part-time caseworker.
In keeping with the tradition of recognizing all as a part of God’s family, Catholic Social Services continues in welcoming strangers into our midst and offers services to refugees, immigrants and migrants.
