In honor of Refugee Awareness Month, Mosaic Family Services is running a month-long Refugee Awareness Campaign. Throughout this month, we will be sending emails, social media posts (follow us on Facebook and Instagram), and hosting a virtual raffle to raise vital funding for Mosaic Family Services.
Who is a Refugee?
The UN categorizes a Refugee as “someone who has been forced to flee his or her country because of persecution, war, or violence. A Refugee has a well-founded fear of persecution for reasons of race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group”.
How does Mosaic Family Services help Refugees?
Mosaic provides culturally competent client advocacy for newly arrived Refugees who need assistance in accessing medical and mental health care. All of Mosaic’s Refugee client advocates are former Refugees themselves, fluent in English and in their native language, and certified as medical interpreters.
The services we provide include:
Individual psycho-social assessment
Public transportation orientation
Advocacy through hospitals, health clinics, and public assistance agencies
Translation and interpretation services
Information and referrals
Education on health-related topics including stress management and healthy families
To be eligible for this program, individuals must be identified as refugees, having possession of an I-94 or I-551 green card, a valid social security card, and have been in the United States for less than 5 years.
