Preferred Communities Program
 
The Preferred Communities (PC) program, funded by the Office of Refugee Resettlement, is designed to enable the resettlement of newly-arrived refugees in communities where they have many opportunities to become self-sufficient and integrated. Additionally, it provides support for refugees with special needs who require intensive case management allowing opportunities for early employment and sustained economic independence.

Examples of special populations needing intensive case management may include, youth and young adults without parents or permanent guardians who have spent an unusually long period under refugee camp conditions; refugees experiencing social or psychological conditions, including emotional trauma resulting from war; Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, and Transgender (LGBT) refugees; refugees who are HIV-positive; or other populations with physical disabilities or medical conditions identified and determined by PRM and ORR as needing intensive case management.
