New Americans are tenacious and strong, resilient and brave. They are dedicated to learning, working hard and creating a home for themselves and their families. They overcome obstacles and are focused on building their own versions of the American Dream.
Citizenship is a huge goal that many refugees have once they are resettled in the United States. During those first few weeks, it seems like a faraway dream, but it’s a dream that motivates many new Americans down their own pathway towards citizenship. Many of the refugees we serve have never had the opportunity to participate in civic life prior to their arrival in the United States.
