Resettlement and Life in the United States: Refugees face many challenges when starting over in a new country. Employment skills and other cultural and social capabilities they had utilized at home may not transfer over, and it is often quite a challenge to start new careers and integrate into a new culture and community. Even basic components of daily life are vastly changed. Adults can find it difficult to have to learn a new language, and often their children will take on an interpretor’s role for their family. While refugees state they like the organization and structure of America, navigating new complex systems such as employment, housing and education can be very difficult on their own.
