Jenny Barischoff is starting a new refugee resettlement site in Salem, Oregon as a branch office of Catholic Charities Oregon in Portland. Volunteers are going to be especially important as she builds community awareness and starts with a very small staff.
She’ll recruit volunteers specifically to help with employment and is looking for curriculum and other materials already available. There’s a lot out there for general volunteer training, but less that is specific to employment.
Please send your suggestions and resources to help Jenny launch the first refugee resettlement program in Salem!
