Refugee Health: Resettlement Agencies


The U.S. Department of State has cooperative agreements with voluntary resettlement agencies to deliver refugee reception and placement services. Thus, all primary refugees will have a sponsoring organization working with them upon arrival to Wisconsin. Local affiliates 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.
