How does our refugee employment program benefit your business?


Provide Long-Term Workers

Refugees have a variety of work experience and skills.  Since they have lost their homes, personal property and careers in their home countries, refugees have a strong drive to regain self-sufficiency and economic stability for their families and are committed to long-term employment..  Many were professionals and small business owners in their home countries.


Pre-screening Services to Employers

We have refugee candidates who are heavily pre-screened to determine child care, transportation, English levels, math abilities and overall job readiness. We also see that a candidate has updated immigration documents and provide assistance with renewal application process.


Free Training Consultants/Interpreters

Our professional Training Consultants/Interpreters are available to employers to assist in mediation, interpretation, orientation, safety instruction and problem-solving issues.


Employers Become Part of the Global Picture

Often when a refugee begins to work in the U.S. they send money back to family members who remain living in their home country or refugee camp.  By hiring a refugee you are also assisting in providing much needed financial assistance to a refugee’s extended family.



What makes refugees good employees?
