REFUGEE PROGRAM

Acclimating to a new culture can be intimidating, but we’re here to help make it a little less daunting for adults 60 or older, who are Kent County residents with refugee status. We connect them to services that meet their needs, whether that’s making referrals, learning English or just making new friends. We use interpretation services when needed.
