Following in a more than 30-year tradition of hospitality in North Carolina’s Triad, CWS established its Greensboro resettlement office in early 2009, partnering with the local community to provide comprehensive resettlement services to newly arrived refugees through the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program.
Though its Refugee Resettlement Program, CWS Greensboro provides comprehensive case management and employment services aimed at empowering newly arrived refugees to build a foundation for long-term self-sufficiency and success in the U.S. Services for refugees include basic needs support, case management, cultural orientation, health access assistance and intensive job preparation and placement services.
CWS Greensboro is also proud to serve the community at large providing citizenship education, immigration legal services and community education and engagement opportunities throughout the year.
With the launch of a new website and the development of a recurrent newsletter, CWS hopes to promote greater awareness of the opportunities afforded by its various services as well as to give former and current clients/refugees in our community an opportunity to share their stories.
