Settle In for Afghans

Settle In Facebook, an initiative launched by the Cultural Orientation Resource Exchange (CORE) in September 2021, engages newly arrived Afghans resettling in the United States in an interactive format. This free and publicly available resource connects new arrivals to vital information tied to early resettlement services, employment, housing, education, and healthcare.
