The organization works to educate refugees to help them focus on their new lives, including acclimating to the culture, social interactions, interactions with the law, etc. When they come to the United States, most refugees have not learned the rules, laws, respect of people, and culture of their new country. Every week, we work with individuals to teach the differences between their new country and their old. As a Charitable Organization in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, we have launched this program to help individuals learn to focus on the new aspects of their lives. To do this, we have speakers who discuss their experiences and the differences in their new culture.
As a Local Non-Profit Organization, Sapibon Foundation, Inc. also offers a class to help individuals obtain green cards. For the green card, the organization completes and sends the application (individuals are responsible for the fee). For citizenship, we provide a class to prepare individuals for the citizenship test. Typically, once individuals apply for citizenship, they have a citizenship interview date of one to three months. During this period, we help them prepare by asking typical interview questions.
We also help refugees find hospitals and doctors and get to their offices. Many of these individuals do not speak or read English, so they will contact the organization when they need health services. Our volunteers/staff will call for the appointment and take them to the hospital/doctor.
