Refugee Services

Refugees are individuals who are unable to return to their country of origin because of persecution or a well-founded fear of persecution on account of race, religion, and nationality, membership to a particular social group, political opinion, or displacement due to climate change.

Our refugee program offers multiple services:

• Home Visits

• Educational Classes Including Vocational English

• Referrals to Supportive & Low-income Programs

• Naturalization application Assistance for Refugee Seniors

AccessCal is the go-to resource center for refugees in Orange County. We are contracted with the County of Orange Social Services Agency to provide case management and employment services through Refugee Cash Assistance (RCA), a program that offers cash aid to help refugees resettle, learn English and find employment. Our teams deliver culturally and linguistically sensitive services to refugees to create a sense of belonging and a safe haven for refugees resettling in Orange County.
