Meeting to better serve refugees coming to Amarillo

Amarillo, TX - With more refugees coming into the Panhandle, there is more of a need for services to help them.

Thursday, many of the groups aimed at helping them with health services and learning English came together to see how they can all better serve the growing refugee population.

Dena Dyer, with Catholic Family Services says the event helped them all learn how to help meet the growing demand for these services.

"We have a growing refugee population not just from resettlement services at agencies like Catholic Family Services but also secondary migrants that come because they hear of jobs. So we want to be able to help as many as we can to be able to become self sufficient," said Dyer.
