Church World Service (CWS) and AmeriCorps

Church World Service (CWS) and AmeriCorps have partnered to offer a program for refugee and Cuban/Haitian entrant populations needing extra assistance navigating housing and health systems in their local communities.

What does that mean for refugees in Broward and Palm Beach County? It means that persons needing special attention in understanding various topics like landlord and tenant rights/responsibilities, understanding their lease, where to go for health services, how to make doctor’s appointments, or pharmacy orientations can get free individualized help through this program. Our goal is to improve refugee integration and self-sufficiency in housing and health through community involvement.

If you are interested in partnering with us, want to refer someone, or want more information about eligibility requirements, please contact Refugee AmeriCorps member Noraya Razzaque at nrazzaque@cwsglobal.org or call (561) 266-0624.
