Case Workers connect clients to employment, health, and social service resources in the community with the goal of helping clients become self-sufficient. Our Case Workers will gain valuable experience assisting with a variety of professional duties that contribute to the efficiency of operations within the Customized Advocacy, Community development, and Economic Empowerment programs. Case Work services include an array of support services such as referral for health care, childcare, housing, utility assistance, language, and vocational training, family wellness training, emergency financial assistance, and transportation and interpreter/translation assistance to help clients access and utilize services in culturally and linguistically appropriate manners.
Customized advocacy builds women-to-women networks that empower English education, economic development, and/or human rights for Utah’s refugee women and their families. Women-to-women networks offer a safe place to build friendships supported by conservative cultures upset by post-traumatic stress disorders (PTSD) while empowering important gender-based, socio-economic skills that are largely under-realized by refugee women.
