Developed by the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, this comprehensive resource guide is intended for those serving refugees with disabilities.
This includes refugee resettlement staff, Mutual
Assistance Association staff, community advocates, and social service providers. It was created in an effort to increase understanding and exposure to the various services and programs available for those serving refugees with disabilities.
The guide is divided into sections: services for adults with disabilities, services for refugee children with disabilities, housing, assistive technology and more. Information included was based on input from focus groups, technical assistance requests, and surveys. Scenarios and stories about refugees with disabilities are included to illustrate individual experiences.
The guide was originally published in 2007. Some websites and phone numbers may have changed.
