The U.S. Department of State has cooperative agreements with voluntary resettlement agencies (VOLAGs) to deliver refugee reception and placement services. Thus, all primary refugees will have a sponsoring organization working with them upon arrival to Wisconsin. The local affiliates of national VOLAGs are responsible for refugee resettlement throughout the state as well as assisting refugees in issues such as employment, English-language training, health service referrals, and housing. These agencies are located throughout the state.
