Catholic Charities of Oregon assists individuals and families that must leave their homelands due to a well-founded fear of persecution for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, and/or political opinion. Historically, the state of Oregon has welcomed approximately 2000 refugees every year. Catholic Charities is one of only three Resettlement Agencies (RA) in the state that provides resettlement services to these individuals and families. The services offered through this program address a wide array of needs, ranging from initial resettlement to long-term intensive case management. Our role as a resettlement agency is to ensure that refugees are properly resettled and connected to necessary resources and services in Oregon and that the families are empowered to rebuild their lives and reach self-sufficiency. Recently there has been a significant reduction in the number of refugees admitted into the country on an annual basis, consequently reducing funding to Refugee Resettlement programs nationwide. However, newly arrived refugees across the country are still in need of receiving these critical supportive services to in order to successfully achieve independence. In partnership with the other two RAs in Oregon, our program worked closely with the State of Oregon to broaden the scope of services provided to refugees living throughout the state, to address the increased needs and reduced funding. As of October 1, 2018, our program began providing both short-term and long-term case management and employment services to refugees, asylees and victims of trafficking in 5 counties throughout the state.
