A Client Story:
JFS resettled Iranian refugees Arash and Noreen along with their seven year old daughter. Within three months, Arash and Noreen completed JFS’ VESL classes. Our Job Developer helped Arash find a job as a dental technician; and assisted Noreen in obtaining her hairdressing license and work in a beauty salon. A JFS Case Manager helped Arash and Noreen with enrolling their daughter in first grade at a local elementary school. After three months, they were able to rent an apartment, and settle in to their new life in America.
