Houston Now the Top Refugee Resettlement City in US

Refugee News

From Voice of America:

The United States is the world's top refugee resettlement country. More refugees resettle in the state of Texas and in particular, the city of Houston than anywhere else in the country. As VOA's Greg Flakus reports from Houston, refugees there find a thriving economy, warm weather and a diverse urban scene where they can locate help in starting a new life.


Locations and Case Worker Access Features Added

Feature Enhancements

We've completed some new core features. The first is the ability of an agency to have multiple office locations. If your agency only has a single location you will see nothing new in this area. We've designed it so that agencies that have a single location aren't impacted. Also, we've tied location access to a user. We did this so that a caseworker at a multisite agency that is focused on working on cases at single location the caseworker doesn't have to worry about location.

While we were making the location changes, we also added the ability for an agency to restrict caseworkers by one or more program. Our existing customer users currently have access to all programs so they can choose to decide to limit some caseworkers by program. So for example, if a caseworker isn't permitted to see information in a program like case management they will no longer be able to do so.

Here is a screenshot from the access screen showing the ability to do these access changes.


If you aren't part of our journey to provide the best technology available for refugee management we would like to discuss how we can work together.


World Refugee Day Houston 2014

Social Events

Refugee Solution represented at World Refugee Day Houston 2014.

Steve and I arrived early and got a good spot. We handed out 300 pieces of candy and stamped passports. We donated an iPad to one lucky attendee that received all stickers on the passport and turned it in.

Ali gets the event kicked off by explaining to everyone how the Houston Refugee Consortium (representative from each agency are standing behind him) help refugees like himself achieve life goals. Ali announced the he passed testing and will obtain U.S. citizenship in the month of June.

The crowd was steady all day. We happened to be located next to a dentist so our candy was a big hit with the kids and parents received a toothbrush from the dentist.

Our newest customers from RST representing.

There were tents with a variety of cultural food available to try. The Congo tent were especially festive.

There was a continuous stream of demonstrations on the main stage.

Feature Enhancements

We've integrated our project management system into RMS. Our customers can now see that our development team is hard at work. They can use the user menu to view project tasks, recent activity, or the bug tracker.
