The Chaldean Community Foundation is a human and social services organization providing assistance to the disadvantaged, hardship cases and new refugee-immigrant populations. While the Chaldean Community Foundation was created to serve the growing needs of the local Middle Eastern refugee populations that have resettled in the United States, we have seen approximately 15% of case management originate outside the refugee base, such as Albanian, Bosnian, Vietnamese, South East Asian and many Arabic denominations.
We assist in the full, successful acculturation, assimilation, adaptation and transitioning integration into American life. In delivery of these social services and empowering the vulnerable, our human services focuses on our main Centers of Excellence in support of our social services, economic empowerment and coordinated-care on mental health and wellness care programs. In addition, the Chaldean Community Foundation assists the community with Immigration services, Naturalization courses, English as a Second Language (ESL) classes, high-skilled re-certification and job placement and providing services to the special needs (mentally, visual and physically disabled) client base. Our aim is to alleviate the human and financial burden on the communities that these vulnerable citizens live, while providing them with full human services so they can reach their fullest potential and self-independence.
Since 2008 more than 30,000 Iraqi refugees have arrived in Michigan, while another 400 sponsored-immigrants and refugees are expected to arrive, monthly. In 2008 the Chaldean Community Foundation initially received funding to provide services to 400 people per year and serviced 4,000 that year. The Chaldean Community Foundation is on pace to provide refugee, immigrant and traditional human services to more than 20,000 people for our fiscal year 2016 through our expanded acculturation programs, affiliates and cooperatives.
