Alliance’s Refugee Resettlement Programs include Reception and Placement, Cultural Orientation Matching Grant, and Refugee Cash Assistance. Alliance is one of two agencies in Texas that provides repatriation services. Reception and Placement provides a range of domestic services for newly-arrived refugees to help them to adjust in their new lives in Houston. Refugees receive Reception and Placement programs during their first 30 days of arrival. During this time, case managers provide core-services to refugees, such as airport pick-up, housing arrangements, utility connection, cultural orientations, home visits, benefit enrollment, and health screenings. Case managers also assist clients with school enrollment, registering for social services and applying for identification cards.
All of Alliance’s programs work in unison to ensure newly-arrived refugees achieve economic self-sufficiency through employment within 90 days of arrival. Because of our holistic approach, 85% of refugee clients achieve this goal!
