Rebuilding life in Omaha

Jamal, our Senior Manager of Programs, closed on his first house recently. He said, “Little by little I’m working to gain back what I lost in my country. I’ve been in the US for almost 4 years now. It doesn’t happen right away but if you keep working hard you can do it.” Originally from Darfur, Jamal was an employment caseworker at REC for 3 years before his current position as Manager of Programs. Jamal is such a great mentor, leader and friend to the refugees we serve. 🙌🏾
