What We Do

 

How We Help

Building Peaceful Bridges picks up the resettlement process where the U.S. refugee resettlement agencies leave off. The first phase of resettlement is funded under the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program. Typically, government support for refugee families only lasts for 3 – 6 months. Without additional funding, the agencies cannot afford to provide continued support. Many refugees and their families have barely established their footing before official resettlement support ends. Many individuals are still seeking permanent housing and jobs, as well as developing English language skills. This process also is inhibited by various life challenges, including physical and mental health issues such as PTSD. Building Peaceful Bridges partners with resettlement agencies and other social service organizations to bridge the integration gap.
