solving problems. uplifting lives.

Over the past few months, JFS presented a series of seven online Afghan Cultural Orientation sessions for community providers, including Mental & Behavioral Health, General Physical Health, Maternal & Early Childhood Health, Primary Education, Secondary Education, Social Services & Emergency Response, and Community Engagement.

Each of the presentations included an introduction to Afghan culture especially tailored to the practitioners/providers specific needs, with the goal of providing an expanded understanding of Afghan cultures, motivations and family structures. Designed to equip practitioners with tools to assist in the successful resettlement and integration of their Afghan clients and neighbors, all programs and follow up Q&A sessions were recorded and are available for viewing on our JFS YouTube channel!
