MVRCR Receives Funding for Health Access Program from United Way of the Valley & Greater Utica Area
The Mohawk Valley Resource Center for Refugees is pleased to announce that they have received funding United Way of the Valley and Greater Utica Area to support the agency’s Health Access Program. The agency will receive $15,000 in the initial year of a two-year contract.
The funded Health Access For Refugees and Immigrants Program provides enhanced case management services, health promotion education, and access to healthcare for refugees beyond the initial 90-day resettlement period and for immigrants resettling to the area. Refugees and immigrants will learn how to support a healthy lifestyle and cultivate advocacy skills in a culturally relevant manner that will help them to successfully navigate services independently in the community.
MVRCR is committed to providing quality programs that result in the best outcomes for its clients. This program aligns perfectly with the agency’s mission to assist refugees, immigrants, and Limited English Proficient (LEP) individuals throughout the integration process and help them achieve independence and self-sufficiency by developing products and services that enable us to build community with many cultures. The program allows MVRCR to achieve its mission with the assistance of culturally competent and compassionate assistance.
