Facilitating Pathways to Prosperity

Helping refugee and documented immigrant families successfully acclimate and achieve independence in America. When they thrive, we all thrive!

What we do

What We Do

  • Valens Solutions exists to assist refugees and documented immigrants with integration in America, addressing critical needs so they may achieve a healthy, independent, and productive life. We strive to ensure that fundamental needs are met. Without a solid foundation, progress for these vulnerable individuals and families cannot be sustained. ​

  • Conduct individualized, comprehensive, culturally competent assessments to effectively address and determine solutions for Social Determinants of Health (SDOH), such as food insecurity, unsafe housing, illiteracy, poverty, transportation challenges, and barriers to healthcare access.
    • We train individuals from local refugee/immigrant communities to serve as Valens Solutions Community Navigators, who function as case managers - Multi-lingual and having lived experience, they are essential to identifying the critical needs of the clients we serve.

  • Provide critical education to clients: Parenting in the United States, Laws and Legal Responsibilities in America, Domestic Violence, Food Safety, Substance Abuse, Responding to Police, and more.

  • Advocate for equity and justice by providing guidance and resources for our clients in legal and civil matters, often working with the court system to successfully collaborate with our clients and achieve optimal outcomes.

  • Serve as a bridge between school systems and immigrant students and their parents and/or families to enhance engagement, increase understanding, and promote social and academic success.

  • Provide education to public and private organizations on cultural competence, diversity, equity, and inclusion, and overcoming cultural and language barriers.

Guiding Principles

Our Guiding Principles

The values that drive our passion 

Courage 

Strength to keep moving forward in the face of adversity.

Equity

Fighting for fair and just outcomes.

Respect

Believing every human life is valuable.

Empathy

Embracing each person's unique background and life experiences.

Collaboration

Working with others to empower the community.

How We Do It

Investing in people, one relationship
at a time...

We meet people where they are and strive to care for their most critical needs in that moment...

Then, by employing Community Navigators who function in a role similar to case managers, we provide meaningful, culturally competent assessments to identify wrap-around services and support necessary to help individuals and/or families successfully integrate into their communities. Led by experts in the areas of government, health care, the criminal justice system and legal services, emphasis is placed on securing food and safe housing, basic necessities, access to medical care and essential legal services, and ultimately the achievement of education and gainful employment.
