Handbook for Sponsors of Indochinese Refugees.
Tobin, Joseph Jay; Koschmann, Nancy Lee
This handbook provides information for the prospective sponsors of Indochinese refugees. The refugees' general background, experiences, and reasons for coming to the United States are discussed. The sponsor's importance and role in the resettlement program are examined. The handbook also outlines problems of adjustment to life in America and what help in this regard refugees will expect from their sponsors. Cultural differences and the part they play in sponsorship are analysed. The handbook includes a practical checklist of tasks that must be done for refugees and basic items they will require on arrival. (APM)
