We are ReSET
ReSET Westchester, Inc. was created to welcome and assure that new refugees have a safe home, and are prepared to lead productive and independent lives in the New York area.
How you can help TODAY!
ReSET Northern Westchester is on the move! Our resettlement initiative is energized by eleven religious and civic organizations that serve the Northern Westchester community (Please see the list on the bottom of the page).
We have now settled one person who is in his own home and has started his first job in America! We have just moved another family of 3 into their new home, and have also welcomed a family of 5 (soon to be 6) as our third family. In June, we will be welcoming our fourth family, a family of five, to the USA. And ReSET has just signed an agreement with Neighbors Link who has agreed to be our fiscal sponsor.
ReSET plays a direct role in helping refugees establish new homes in our neighborhood. Welcoming persecuted, lonely, and hungry people from other countries is America’s most noble tradition. ReSET will help refugees on the road to self-sufficiency by providing life-altering support during their transition to resettling in their new homes.
Our tasks are both complex and costly. These include obtaining affordable housing, furniture, employment, transportation, English language training, getting kids, if any, enrolled in schools, dealing with government agencies for assistance, and counseling if needed.
To assist ReSET in identifying refugees that are looking to resettle in our area, we are currently working with the following international organizations that empower individuals and communities that are impacted by humanitarian crises to become self-reliant:
- HIAS (Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society)
- IRC (International Rescue Committee)
- IRIS (Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Services)
