Integrating Refugees into the American Economy
Economic integration is essential in order for refugees to become self-sufficient and successfully integrate in the United States. HIAS assists refugees with integration through three specific programs that emphasize financial literacy, rapid employment, and asset building. In these unprecedented times, the challenges of being economically insecure are more present than ever.
Join us for a virtual program to hear from Keith Combs, HIAS’ Economic Inclusion Program Manager, on how HIAS prepares recently resettled refugees to enter the American workforce. The program will include a panel discussion featuring Lina Zdruli, Founder and CEO of Dafero; Noobtsaa Philip Vang, Founder and CEO of Foodhini; and Arielle Reynoso, Partnerships and Volunteer Program Lead at Upwardly Global, who represent three organizations in Greater Washington D.C. that help new immigrants and refugees succeed through economic opportunity.
