About

Can you imagine what it is like to leave your country and begin a new life in a country where you do not know the language or culture? This is a reality for many of our refugee clients. Last year Catholic Charities Fort Worth resettled nearly 650 refugees.

These refugees, coming from war torn countries all over the world, often speak little English and need help gaining the skills for success in their new American lives (grocery shopping, navigating public transportation and job hunting are some of these skills). Volunteers mentor individuals and families, helping them learn English and obtain basic skills.
