The project, conducted by Des Moines Area Community college, Ankenny, Iowa, is directed toward the English language and cultural adaptation needs of refugee adults and children. The Handbook developed for the project is based on the premise that the needs of refugees can be met effectively and efficiently in a family approach, with parents and children involved in the same setting. The project is still operating and serves parents and children from the international community at Iowa State University as well as refugee families.
