    Benefits of Hiring Refugees

    Refugees are Work Authorized
    Refugees are fully authorized to begin working immediately upon arrival in the United States. There is no expiration time for this authorization.

    Good Work Ethic
    Having lost their homes, personal property and careers in their native countries, refugees have a strong desire to regain self-sufficiency and economic stability for their families.

    Tax Incentives
    Your business could qualify for certain tax credits and training incentives when you employ those receiving public assistance.

    Skills and Experience
    Refugees have a variety of work experience and skills. Many are well-educated and were professionals and small business owners in their native countries. Their knowlegdge, skills, and abilities coupled with a positive work ethic and a willingness to learn are qualities that U.S. employers seek for their workforce.

    Promotes Community
    Hiring refugees not only assists them on their way to self-sufficiency in America, it adds diversity and richness to the workforce, and ultimately to the community at large.
