JFCS, now recognized as a new Refugee Resettlement site, will be assisting up to 325 refugees over the next year. Our resettlement program will feature comprehensive case management for 3-6 months while also helping local refugees who are already here with basic needs including rent, utility bills, food and more. Your gift will make a direct impact on the life of a refugee who JFCS is supporting while continuing the legacy of OCJCR.
