Refugee and Immigrant Self-Empowerment

Case Management & Employment Services

Reinforcing our Commitment

The mission of the Employment Program is to help our members, based on their career goals and past experience, and identify matching job opportunities. The program also provides employment coaching and guidance to job seekers so that they can secure and maintain long-term employment.

Assistance with employment includes helping write resumes and cover letters, searching for jobs, applying for jobs, following up with employers, preparing for interviews, providing transportation and assist during interviews when necessary, assisting with the onboarding process, helping with interpretation during orientation and other phases of the hiring process, and mediating in case of crisis between employee and employer 

Refugee & Immigrant Self-Empowerment (RISE) provides all essential services to ensure that all New Americans can live productive lives, engage in their communities, and continue to pursue successful integration. RISE Bridging Case Managers assist refugees and immigrants in navigating everyday tasks that may seem overwhelming or complex but are ultimately necessary for their path to self-sufficiency.
