The journey doesn't end with resettlement

April 22, 2021

A family arrives in the US after 20 years in a refugee camp - now what?

A small but significant number of people are resettled from refugee camps to places like the US, Canada, and Australia every year. Have you ever wondered what happens to them after they arrive?

The challenges they faced in the refugee camp are exchanged for new challenges as they work to rebuild their lives and integrate into in a new society.

IAFR serves in both refugee camps and in countries of resettlement.

As we serve in both refugee camps and in countries of resettlement, we are eager to share about what it takes for people to flourish in their new place.

Join us on May 7th for an online conversation.

What does it take for people who have been forcibly displaced to flourish in a new place?

How can long-time community members and newcomers learn to build a community that allows everyone to thrive?

We hope that you will join us for a conversation about the ongoing process of integration for those who have passed through the experience of being asylum seekers and refugees.

Date: May 7, 2021

Time: 11:00 AM (Central Time)

Venue: Zoom (online)


*Participation is free, but registration is required.

Among other things, we will share our latest insights related to the IAFR Continuum of Response (below), a tool we use to develop contextualized ministry strategies.

There will be time for interaction and conversation, so please come with your questions and ideas. Let's learn together!

IAFR offers training and consulting.

Our vision and mission is bigger than anything we can hope to accomplish on our own. That's why we are eager to train and equip others for life-giving ministry among refugees and asylum seekers.
