EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES FOR REFUGEES/IMMIGRANTS
 
Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by
so doing some people have shown hospitality to
angels without knowing it.

- Hebrew 13:2 (NIV)
 
Are you aware of refugees/immigrants who need employment?
Does your church sponsor refugees/immigrants?
 
If you answered yes to either of these questions, then
this information is for you.
 
Per Shaun Smith, ACS CEO, Albright Care Services has an excellent career ladder at their facilities for people just starting out looking for work. The career ladder begins with entry-level jobs and offers scholarships for effective employees who choose to advance. These career opportunities would be great for refugees/immigrants. They have facilities in Williamsport, Lewisburg, York, Lancaster, and Lebanon.
