The JFCS resettlement program provides comprehensive case management and supportive services to newcomer families for a minimum of 3-6 months. We resettle refugees arriving directly from overseas through Reception & Placement (R&P), a program of the United States Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP). We also work with post-R&P clients who require additional assistance and services such as Intensive Case Management, Afghan GAPS Services, and Ukrainian Initial Services Preferred Communities (PC) programs.
