Did you know that asylees are eligible for benefits and services such as job placement, English classes, and temporary cash assistance? Many asylees are not aware of time-limited benefits and services available to them through the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement that can facilitate a smooth adjustment and early self-sufficiency in the U.S.
Please call 1-800-354-0365 for information and referrals to programs in their local community.
This line is a federally-funded service for asylees only and provides information in 18 languages. A free guide to asylee benefits and services is available at http://cliniclegal.org/
Also, translated information for asylees in 8 languages is available at http://www.acf.hhs.gov/
