Educational Programs

Providing ESL for Adults: We provide educational services to help women and men thrive in an English speaking environment.
 
Tutoring for School Aged Kids: Hanan has partnered with other community organizations that bring volunteers to work one-on-one with refugee students who have a strong desire to improve English language skills along with helping them complete homework assignments.  Students range from Kindergarten to Middle School. Hanan volunteers have a sensitivity to cultural differences in addition to patience, understanding and fluency.
 
– Hanan has hosted a variety of job fairs, and building resumes for families

Healthy Living

– Healthy living programs are offered through a variety of programs and services. 
 
– Hanan has partnered with other community organizations to provide free health screening at annual health fairs and community outreach activities.

Food Program

– Hanan helps address food insecurities.
 
– We help refugees navigate the food environment as they encounter unfamiliar food choices.
 
– We have found refugees/immigrants particularly those in families with children may not have the financial resources or familiarity with food environment needed to protect themselves or their children from food insecurity.
 
– Providing food boxes temporarily to help assist for a short period of time until refugees are familiar with navigating the food environment.
