Welcoming the Stranger: NYANA and the Indochinese Refugees

By Arie Bierman, Valerie Otarsh

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), September 1998

The Refugee Urban Skills Project, conceived and run by the New York Association for New Americans (NYANA) from 1984 to 1987, was an innovative approach to the resettlement needs of Indochinese refugees. It taught refugees vital skills for functioning in an urban setting; developed linkages with locally based agencies and resources; assisted refugees with specific housing, crime, and intergroup issues; and empowered refugees to advocate for themselves and develop their own support network.
