Catholic Charities’ immigrant service program changes name

Diocesan Catholic Charities renamed its “Hogar Immigrant Service Education” program, which provides education and workforce training to immigrants and refugees, to “Education and Workforce Development.” The new name signifies an expansion of its previous mission to now offer services to anyone seeking assistance navigating the job market.       

“We will continue to provide the excellent education and workforce training programs we have offered to refugees and immigrants, but, simultaneously, want to ensure we make every effort to expand these critical services to other individuals and families in need,” said Art Bennett, president and CEO of Catholic Charities. “This expansion will help men and women struggling to find their first job, or a better job, in an effort to improve life for themselves, their families and their communities.” 

Catholic Charities has offered classes to immigrants and refugees in the Northern Virginia area at various locations since 1981, including computer literacy, employment training, English language and more.
