Every June we host a cultural resource fair to learn about refugees that have been resettled in southern Nevada to celebrate World Refugee Day. At this event there will opportunities to learn about the strength, courage and resilience of refugees, enjoy cultural entertainment and taste food from around the world!
Catholic Charities helps new arrivals assimilate to our Las Vegas community through cultural orientation. Refugees are also assisted in the process of securing housing and basic needs such as food and clothing. Other services include English classes and job placement. The ultimate goal is to help each refugee attain self-sufficiency as soon as possible. In 2017 Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada, and the resettlement agencies we monitor, assisted more than 1,000 refugees.
