About

About Us
PRERNA is a non-profit humanitarian organization that empowers refugees with opportunities to rebuild sustainable lives in the United States. We help refugees across all ethnicities and faiths become independent with continuum care. Our services include housing, supplies, healthcare, education, employment and cultural assimilation.

Qualifications
* Demonstrated ability to manage multiple projects and details simultaneously
* Highly motivated, self-directed, tact and diplomatic skills
* Clear, courteous and professional manner when working with the public
* Strong oral and written communication skills
* Ability to work cooperatively with PRERNA team leads and volunteers
