Welcome to the MOSAIC Elder Refugee program, offered by Haven Family Resource Center's Area Agency on Aging. As a leading organization in the field of community and society, we are committed to providing comprehensive services to elders in the refugee community. We understand the unique challenges they face and strive to offer support that promotes their well-being and integration into their new homes.
Understanding the MOSAIC Elder Refugee Program
At the Haven Family Resource Center, we believe that every elder deserves access to necessary support and care. The MOSAIC Elder Refugee program aims to meet the specific needs of elders in the refugee community. We work closely with local agencies, community partners, and volunteers to ensure the provision of culturally sensitive services that empower and assist elders in their daily lives.
Comprehensive Services for Elders
Our program offers a wide range of services to address the diverse needs of elders in the refugee community. From healthcare and social support to legal assistance and language interpretation, we strive to provide a comprehensive support system that helps elders access the resources they need to thrive.
We collaborate with healthcare professionals and organizations to facilitate access to quality healthcare services. Our dedicated team assists elders in navigating the healthcare system, scheduling appointments, and providing transportation when needed. We also offer health education programs that focus on preventive care and health promotion.
Social Support and Community Integration
Loneliness and isolation can be significant challenges for elders in the refugee community. To address this, our program emphasizes social support initiatives such as community events, support groups, and cultural activities. We believe that fostering connections and building a strong community network is essential for their well-being.
Legal Assistance and Advocacy
Understanding legal rights and navigating legal processes can be intimidating, especially for elders with limited English proficiency. Our program offers assistance in accessing legal services, providing guidance on important documents, and advocating for the rights of elder refugees in various areas such as housing, employment, and benefits.
Language and Interpretation Services
Clear communication is vital for effective access to services and resources. We provide language interpretation services to bridge language barriers for elders in the refugee community. Our trained interpreters facilitate communication during medical appointments, legal meetings, and other important interactions.
Collaboration and Partnership
Collaboration is key to our success. We work closely with local agencies, community organizations, and volunteers who share our mission of supporting elders in the refugee community. By leveraging these partnerships, we can provide a more comprehensive range of services while maximizing our impact.
