Our Refugee and Immigrant Counseling & Case Management (RICCM) program works with children, youth, adults, elders and families who have immigrated to the United States and have experienced emotional and/or behavioral difficulties due to transitions, trauma history, and adjustments.
Currently, RICCM staff is able to provide services in 15 languages and serves nearly 150 people from 25 different countries. Interpreters are used to work with clients who speak languages not represented by our staff.
The RICCM program offers traditional counseling and case management services, as well as specialized support groups for new Americans. Community Counseling Center recognizes the difficulties faced when leaving one’s home country, and helps individuals and families work to develop tools that can be used to cope with depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, along with other symptoms.
