Description

The Journey To Health program targets 30 refugee individuals. RDC decided to implement a comprehensive culture-sensitive health program known as the Journey To Health, in order to address the healthcare and mental health needs of the refugees resettled in Rhode Island so they can live healthy and independent lives. The Journey To Health is a preventative health promotion approach that fuses cultural orientation with basic health awareness. Participants in the program are empowered with resources and knowledge with the intention that the refugees will live healthy and independent lives, and build a safe, trusting social support network, as well as gather basic stress coping skills to minimize trauma and incidents of domestic violence.


Volunteers that support this program help with watching the kids of parents taking the class, helping the class run smoothly, observing the presenters, and occasionally offering translation support. Our Classes take place on Saturdays from 10am-12pm
