resettlement

UNHCR, B. Sokol, Nov. 2012

The U.S. State Department has greenlighted a Northern Nevada nonprofit  to help resettle refugees escaping hotbeds of conflict around the globe beginning this fall.

Carina Black, executive director of the Reno-based Northern Nevada International Center, says their application to become an official resettlement agency was approved in February. They've since been laying the groundwork, and building a stakeholders' network, before those first few families arrive.
