The mission of the Family Services Department is to strengthen refugee families by incarnating the compassion of Christ through life skills training, emotional and spiritual support, and by connecting them to the local community. The Family Services Department is divided into two programs in order to accomplish our mission.
The Employment Services program functions as a free job referral service to local businesses and corporations with which For the Nations has connections. Thousands of refugees arrive in Dallas each year, authorized to work and pre-screened to match skills and previous work experience to available jobs. For the Nations is dedicated to connecting refugees to these job opportunities.
Life Skills Assistance
Our Family Services team helps refugees lead more independent lives in the U.S. This can mean helping them find the grocery store, connecting them with medical and dental care, sorting through important documents and mail, and advocating for them when their voice is not being heard.
