Catholic Community Services of Utah’s Migration and Refugee Services Department operates three programs—Refugee Resettlement, Refugee Foster Care, and Immigration. Within each program, there are teams dedicated to specific areas of self-sufficiency, working to provide clients with the resources and knowledge they need. 

Let’s talk about a few teams of the teams working under Refugee Foster Care and the work they do daily to empower refugee clients to reach self-sufficiency.

{slider title="Foster Family Consultants" open="false"}

Refugee Foster Care's Family Consultants work to support those on the path to becoming trained, licensed, and confident foster parents so they can be a long-term support to an Unaccompanied Refugee Minor. 

Family Consultants provide vital support to foster parents by conducting monthly home visits, scheduling check in calls, as well as providing community resources and continuing education to foster parents. Family Consultants also work alongside foster parents in advocating, skill-building, crisis management, and more. 

{slider Case Management}

Refugee Foster Care Case Managers support Unaccompanied Refugee Minors on the path to long-term self-sufficiency by acting as supportive adults in their lives. They help youth make informed decisions and reach their own goals. 

Case Managers provide support to youth by assisting in cultural orientation and connection, goal setting, physical and mental health, crisis management, and more. Case Managers listen to youth, validate and collaborate with them, help build their skills and provide community resources. 

{slider Transition to Adult Living}

Refugee Foster Care's Transition to Adult Living team does exactly what it sounds like! Our team works hard to support Unaccompanied Refugee Minors through the transition to adult living. 

The Transition to Adult Living team provides youth with individual and group Life Skills Classes, as well as hands-on support with education, employment, and housing. We also assist youth with FAFSA and scholarship applications, vocational training, budgeting, goal setting and skill building. 

{slider Volunteer Programs}

The volunteer team recruits, trains, and matches community members as volunteers to support our refugee clients. Our volunteers work with CCS staff to support clients in reaching self-sufficiency. Our programs include youth mentoring, youth tutoring, ESL tutoring, and more. Learn more about volunteer opportunities with the Migration and Refugee Services department here.
