Resettlement Services

Refugees come to us with great need, having left their homes, possessions, and often even their families in search of safety and a new start. They arrive in America with hopes for a brighter future. 

CCC provides resettlement services that help these individuals achieve stability and equips them with the skills and guidance they need to begin their new lives in the United States.

Education Services

Education Services helps refugees and immigrants improve their conversational English and deepen their understanding of American culture and their new home in the United States. We offer pre-employment and work-readiness training in both classroom and one-on-one settings. 

Refugee Resettlement

 For over 35 years, our program has partnered with communities to help refugees integrate into a new country with dignity. An affiliate of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and one of only nine resettlement agencies with a cooperative agreement with the Department of State,  CCC resettles refugees in Greater Richmond, Roanoke, and Hampton Roads. Resettlement includes initial housing placement, case management, school enrollment and follow-up, health and language support, and education and employment services.

 

The refugees whom we assist are fully vetted by the Department of State in coordination with the U.S. security agencies and have undergone rigorous background checks. To learn more about immigration and the vetting process, read the State Department guidelines, here

Employment Services

Employment Services works with refugee employees and their employers by providing comprehensive screening, training, and follow-up services at no cost. Refugees and eligible populations are provided with employment assessment, job development and placement, and career pathway services. Refugees are legally authorized to work in the United States. They arrive with a variety of skills, expertise, and a strong motivation to build a stable future for themselves and their families.
