JFS has been resettling Special Immigrant Visa holders (SIV’s), and we are ready and waiting to receive arrivals. We have worked hard to resettle refugees and SIV cases for over 28 years to help them rebuild their lives in their new country. The urgency and critical nature of this work is at a level that we have not seen before. However, we are prepared to receive anyone referred to Washtenaw County by the U.S. State Department as part of our national response to this and other humanitarian crises around the world. We are grateful to our community for their continued support and partnership in welcoming refugees and SIV’s.  To learn more and get involved, please click the button below:
