Nyack Alumna, Mariah Walker ('13), Colloquium Guest Speaker
Nyack College interdisciplinary studies alumna, Mariah Walker ('13) was the featured speaker recently for Nyack's Center for Scholarship and Global Engagement Colloquium on the Rockland County campus. Walker is an education coordinator with Hope Refugee Center in Buffalo, NY, a program of Jericho Road Ministries, an outreacch established to reach refugee families.
Mariah shares, "We help and empower refugees who are past the resettlement phase. When refugees are resettled, they have three months of services with the agency that resettled them. After three months the agency is required by federal law to drop them as new clients. That’s where Hope Refugee takes over. We help with social services, school registration, medical appointments, bus tours, house and apartment education, mail reading and so much more."
