Beginning in early 2015, CWS Jersey City has fast become a center for the resettlement of refugees in diverse and vibrant communities across Northern New Jersey.
Though its Refugee Resettlement Program, CWS Jersey City provides comprehensive case management and employment services aimed at empowering newly arrived refugees to build a foundation for long-term self-sufficiency and success in the U.S. Services for refugees include basic needs support, case management, cultural orientation, health access assistance and intensive job preparation and placement services.
CWS Jersey City is also proud to serve the community at large providing citizenship education, immigration legal services and community education and engagement opportunities throughout the year.
