PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: Catholic Charities is the only agency in the South Bay that resettles refugees who have come to the U.S. on their own without a family member or close friend to assist. Refugees are forced to flee their countries of origin because of a well founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion. Some are victims of war, oppression, and political turmoil. All come seeking the opportunity to live in peace, safety, and freedom. These new Americans face the challenge of starting lives anew, often with little more than a few material possessions.
Refugee Resettlement Program – Foster Parent
Program Description: Every year thousands of children are separated from their families because of war. Those who survive, end up in Refugee Camps. They are alone, unaccompanied by any family member. We want to place these teens in caring stable homes. We provide a monthly stipend to the family and services such as tutoring and counseling for the teen. Each family will have a designated case manager at Catholic Charities. There is a two month preparation time to assure an appropriate match.
Volunteer Responsibilities: As assigned by program director
Dates/Times: Will vary
Minimum Age: N/A
