CLINIC’s text4refugees project is an innovative effort to reach more refugees and asylees in a unique way – through their cell phones. Research shows that even newly arrived refugees have cell phones and communicate in high numbers via text message. Refugees, asylees and anyone interested in learning more about citizenship will benefit from our monthly text messages about the citizenship application process. This project is funded by the Office of Refugee Resettlement.
- Messages are available in 6 languages: English, Spanish, Arabic, Nepali, French and Somali
- A subscriber will receive at least two text messages a month
- Subscription is anonymous. CLINIC will not know the subscriber’s name or address.
- Message topics will include: where to find a service provider; where to find English classes; facts about U.S. citizenship; information about the benefits; reminders
