Refugee Reception and Placement

 
Reception & Placement Services provide war-torn families with a chance to reunite and start a new life in America. The program includes reception at the airport, placement in affordable housing, cultural orientation, referrals and general care during the initial 90-day period following a refugee's arrival. ECAC also provides financial assistance to immigrants who have been granted asylum status and to their family members with derivative asylum status. Asylees can apply for this service within 30 days from the date of asylum approval and the derivative asylees should apply to get the assistance within 30 days from the date of entry to the United States. The goal of the program is to make refugees and asylees self-sufficient and become contributing members of society. 
 
ECAC operates this program as an affiliate of the Ethiopian Community Development Council of Arlington, Virginia.
