Refugee Services

New Staff Profile: Emily

We’re excited to welcome Emily Titus, our new specialist in the Intensive Case Management program. Her role involves coming alongside refugees who have a particular vulnerability to develop a plan for self-sufficiency and supporting them in that goal. By the time they exit the program, they can manage their vulnerability— whether that is a medical or mental health need, or something else.

New Staff Profile: John Lamont

We’re excited to introduce you to the newest member of our team, John Lamont! John joins us having just graduated with a history degree from Williams College in Massachusetts. He has a strong interest in immigration and environmental law, and the prevalence of immigrant and refugee stories in political news over the past few years has really raised his awareness. John also feels a personal connection to refugee resettlement through his grandfather, who came to the United States as a refugee from Lithuania in the 1950s.

Make a Difference

Refugee families arrive in Minnesota with very few belongings and limited financial resources. Your donated household and other items (new or nearly new) provide the gifts of welcome and hospitality to our newest neighbors and help ease the financial strain of resettlement.
