Since its establishment in 1979, the Mohawk Valley Resource Center for Refugees has resettled over 15,000 refugees from more than 34 nations, including Vietnam, Russia, Bosnia, Somalia, Burma and Nepal, and has given those displaced by persecution a renewed certainty of home and life.

The center’s services address new arrivals’ most immediate needs, such as housing, health screenings, school enrollment, cultural orientation and employment assistance, so they may focus as soon as possible on integrating into the community and achieving self-sufficiency. In addition, the center operates an interpretation and translation program called Compass that provides language services around the clock in person and through telephone and video in 42 different languages.

The center is committed to providing the necessary services to assist current and former refugees, and to providing the essential tools for community partners that make successful resettlement possible. With funds from Madison County Gives, the Refugee Center will support a program that addresses the crucial health needs of newly arriving refugees and immigrants. Through this program, professionally certified medical interpreters will provide the necessary language support to ensure that individuals comprehend their medical care, understand health promotion education, and receive access to the proper medical services.
