Who is a Refugee?

Refugee status is granted by the President and Congress of the United States. A Refugee is any person who is unable to return to his or her own country because of persecution or a well-founded fear of persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion.


Our Health Care Services for Refugees include:

Outreach, health screenings, health education, immunizations, tuberculosis follow-up and care, referrals to health and human services, interpretation, and health advocacy.
