What are resettlement services?

Resettlement services are tasks that allow and empower refugees to reach self-sufficiency as they start their lives in the United States. This includes "core services" and "extended services." 


What are “core services”?

Learn more about core services HERE.

Core services are the services that all refugee resettlement agences in the nation are required to provide every refugee client. Because refugee resettlement is a government-run program, these services are determined by the government. Unless otherwise listed, all of these service must be completed within 30 days of the refugee arriving.

What are "extended services"?

Extended services are services that are not required by a refugee agency to provide, but are necessary for refugees' self sufficiency. They often occur later in refugees' adjustment process.
