Resource Guide for Serving Refugees with Disabilities

The Resource Guide for Serving Refugees with Disabilities is written as a how-to for caseworkers and advocates who serve refugees with disabilities. It was developed in an effort to improve access to services for newly arrived refugees with disabilities. With an increasing number of refugees with disabilities resettled in the U.S., there is a greater need for effective and coordinated care. Funding for this project was provided through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Refugee Resettlement.
