Refugee Resettlement Services
HHSC works with the federal government and local non-profit organizations to help refugees, refugees with asylum status and victims of severe forms of human trafficking.
Services include cash, medical assistance, interpretation and translation services, job training, English language training, education and cultural orientation services.
The cash and medical assistance services are available to those who have lived in the United States for eight months or less. Most of the other social services are available to those who have lived in the United States five years or less.
