Refugee Social Services

For refugees, getting to the United States is only the first challenge. Next, they must find a place to live, learn how to get around town, pay their bills, put food on the table, apply for permanent resident immigration status and eventually U.S. citizenship. IMAA’s social services provide a vital link between new Americans and the services they need to get ontheir feet in their new home.

Social Services for Refugee Adults and Families

IMAA has several programs that address the social needs of new Americans of all ages, connecting individuals and families to stable housing, transportation, immigration assistance, human services, community resources, cultural orientation, financial education, training opportunities and employment support.

Program eligibility is determined by a number of factors including immigration status, arrival date to the United States, age and income.  To assess the best fit for each person, please contact Ahmed Osman at (507) 289-5960 ext. 108 or ahmed.osman@imaa.net .
