CAL serves as the national technical assistance provider on both overseas and domestic refugee orientation and on the backgrounds and resettlement needs of new refugee groups. Activities include training; development of print, audiovisual, and web resources; research; dissemination and exchange of information throughout an international network of refugee service providers; and serving as a national clearinghouse of information on refugee orientation and refugee groups.

Welcome to the United States: A Guidebook for Refugees and the complementary Welcome to the United States orientation video.
Used in both overseas and domestic orientation, these resources are designed to familiarize resettling refugees with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that will facilitate their resettlement and smooth their adjustment to life in the United States. Learn more.
