MILAWA members provide support with getting acclimated to the American way of living. Members are partnered with a refugee family, and whenever possible a translator. Members visit the family and provide support and guidance with learning household management skills. In this process the refugee family is taught English terms used in the home. Visitations can also include taking families shopping and learning about products and services available in the community. It also includes learning to use public transportation as well locating health facilities necessary for the family’s needs.
Volunteers are always welcome to donate their time and services to help the families transition smoothly into the American community.
