Office of Refugee Resettlement Refugee Program Social Adjustment and Integration – Women’s Empowerment Program

HIAS utilized private funding to develop and implement a Women’s Empowerment Program that equips women with the financial, emotional, and social management skills to succeed in their new communities. The program offered weekly group sessions, opportunities for peer mentorship, and financial assistance to support women’s efforts to address barriers to self-sufficiency and enhanced their capacities to make decisions and plan for their future.
