Refugee Youth ServicesYouth

Nearly half of the approximately 60,000 refugees currently living in the state of Utah are women and children. Youth from refugee backgrounds face unique challenges when adjusting to life in the United States. We provide and coordinate comprehensive services and support programs for both refugee youth, their families and program providers — essential for successful integration of refugee families.
