Fun Place to Work While Helping People
Refugee Cash Assistance Case Manager (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – November 24, 2017
The Houston branch of Refugee Services of Texas is pretty small (about 20 people), but we all support each other, and everyone is dedicated towards serving the refugees. I really love my job and my co-workers. As a Refugee Cash Assistance Case Manager I get at least two clients each day, and I have to talk to various departments regarding those to see if they are eligible to receive the benefits. The hardest part of the job is trying to make the refugees understand that they need to start working and become self-sufficient as soon as possible. The most enjoyable part is seeing refugees achieve self-sufficiency.
My manager and our Area Director in Houston are wonderful at their jobs, as are the people above them in our head office in Dallas. What I have learned from my superiors, my coworkers, and my clients is that, regardless of nationality, ethnicity, religion, at the end of the day, we are all humans, and diversity is the greatest strength a nation can have.
Fantastic coworkers, friendly atmosphere, open-minded management, great benefits
The salary is a bit low, but that is expected for a non-profit.
