What is a Refugee? Immigrant? Asylee?
On April 8th, we had Lily Heine, from Refugee Services of Texas, speak on the subject. She provided information on the program, cleared up some of our misconceptions, and told us how we can be God’s hands for refugees in the Metroplex.

Officially changing its name in 2002 to Refugee Services of Texas, affiliations were formed with Church World Service and Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service to resettle refugees in the Dallas area.

Refugee Services of Texas serves refugees, asylees, individuals with Special Immigrant Visas, Cuban-Haitian entrants, Central American minors, survivors of human trafficking, and other vulnerable populations. In addition, RST works to facilitate partnerships with host communities to build a welcoming environment.

RST employs the use of a refugee management system to proactively meet the needs of our clients. Resettlement services, economic empowerment, English language programs, immigration and legal services are some of the programs in the management system.
