Recruiting Organization: REACT DC Inc.

REACT DC provides compassionate, comprehensive, and cost-effective resettlement assistance for recently arrived refugees in the DC metro area. We work with families on the ground level to enable them on a path to self-reliance within their new American community. REACT DC has assisted with over 20 resettlements for Afghan families to date, and welcomes additional families at a rate of 1-2 families per week. From apartment setups to medical appointments, school registration to job applications, we work hand in hand with families to help them stand on their own feet and integrate into American society. There are currently 53,000+ Afghan families on US military bases, with an additional 14,000+ at lily pad locations overseas awaiting arrival to the US. REACT DC is working to receive DC metro area families and support their resettlement in a culturally sensitive, personalized way. https://www.reactdc.org/
