Economic Self-Sufficiency Programs
Self-sufficiency for clients is the goal of the refugee resettlement program. It is achieved when individuals and families reach a level of economic well-being requiring no government support. Self-sufficiency is achieved through a wide range of social and employment services aimed at improving life for economically disadvantaged populations. Using an array of programs and strategies, MORA’s grantees offer employment services tailored to each refugee’s needs. A few examples of employment services funded by MORA include:
- Job Readiness Training
- Resume Writing
- Job Search Assistance
- Vocational Training
- Interview Preparation
- Transportation Assistance
- Interpretation during job interviews
- Post-placement mentoring for vocational success
