Catholic Charities readies to help Afghans refugees
Catholic Community Services of Lane County has helped about 40 individuals from other countries settle in the area over the past five years. News of the situation in Afghanistan has put the CCS Refugee and Immigrant Services Program and the Refugee Resettlement Coalition on alert to prepare for potential refugees arriving in Lane County. While the situation with Afghani Special Immigrant Visas (SIV) recipients and applicants and other refugees is fluid, when these individuals arrive in the United States, they will be offered case management services through the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program and related programs.
CCS has a contract under the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program to provide resettlement services to refugees and SIV recipients in Lane County. Contact CCS at 541-345-3628 ext. 339 for more information.
