0262.015.10 Refugee Resettlement Agencies

IM-37 June 17, 2011

Recipients with refugee status who are referred to Missouri Work Assistance (MWA) service providers for services may be working with a refugee resettlement agency at the time of referral. Refugee resettlement agencies are a valuable resource and may provide employment services, social services, and language training specifically adapted for refugees, in addition to other kinds of assistance. If the refugee isn’t already actively working with a local resettlement agency, make the referral at the time of enrollment in MWA. A listing of current resettlement agencies can be found at http://www.dss.mo.gov/fsd/iman/refres/1510-015-25.html.  Record the name and address of the resettlement agency in the MWA System case notes when the referral is made, and when the referral is accepted.
