Refugee case managers

On Tuesday, January 12, NBC Nightly News featured a refugee-related story in its "Making a Difference" segment. The story is about an Iraqi woman--a single mom--who became a case manager once she felt comfortable in her own resettlement. This is a very nicely-produced piece that gives a good snapshot of why so many case managers were once refugees themselves. the next time your student tells you there is no case manager helping her, take a moment to think about what you see in this news story.

The story is about two minutes long, but there is a mandatory 15-second commercial at the beginning. You can watch from this screen, or click here to see the full-screen version on the NBC Website.
