Language Learning at Caritas of Austin
Forced to flee their home country due to war and persecution, international refugees are at a crossroads in life. Caritas of Austin’s Refugee Resettlement services during refugees’ first months in Austin provide the comprehensive support needed to acculturate and achieve self-sufficiency. Each year, Caritas of Austin serves more than 500 refugees from over 20 different countries as they transition to life in the United States and work to acheive self-sufficiency. Caritas of Austin provides the immediate needs for safety, food, and housing and links refugees to resources leading to their self-sufficiency in 3-6 months. Those resources include healthcare, English language training, financial assistance, transportation, education, immigration, employment, and community services.
