This book describes how you, who have likely grown up in the comfort of America, can welcome a refugee family and get them started on the path to a new and prosperous life as contributing members of our society.
You will discover all the steps you need, from meeting them upon arrival at the airport to getting them housing to finding them jobs. This book details every task that must be accomplished, complete with checklists, and how to divide tasks with others keeping the workload minimal for everyone.
You'll have access to an actual case study showing timelines and costs and hours of manpower needed to get a real resettlement to successful conclusion.
When we first started a resettlement project with our first family, we had a brief orientation as to what would happen and what would be expected of us. We received a photo-copied handbook with some helpful information, but no where near the depth of what you get in 10 Million To 1.
All that early information we received about refugee resettlement, we put to the test. We embraced what worked and dropped what didn't. In this book I am providing the experience of nearly 10 years, full immersion into eight separate resettlement cases, and supporting and coaching roles with other resettlement teams.
