Extended Case Management (ECM)

MORA’s Extended Case Management Program is designed to provide ongoing and intensive support and assistance to eligible populations not already receiving such help from other programs. ECMP provides eligible clients with the help needed to overcome barriers preventing them from achieving self-sufficiency, social integration, and access to benefits and community resources necessary for success and well-being in the U.S. These barriers may include, but are not limited to, lack of childcare, limited transportation, language illiteracy, financial illiteracy or instability, food insecurity, lack of healthcare, inability to obtain or maintain permanent housing, unfamiliarity with U.S. work culture and customs, need for legal/immigration assistance, and others. ECM grantees provide needed case management support to address these barriers and help clients and their families achieve their goals in the U.S.

Services to Older Refugees (SOR)

The SOR program is designed to ensure that eligible refugees aged 60 years or above receive appropriate services to address the unique needs faced by older clients through programming that is culturally and linguistically sensitive and age appropriate. The program’s primary goal is to increase integration and independent healthy living for older ORR-eligible populations through services such as case management, connecting to mainstream senior programs, citizenship application assistance and exam preparation, and other activities designed to promote well-being and social integration.
