Last week, Settle In received a Silver Anthem Award under the Humanitarian Action and Services category. The Cultural Orientation Resource Exchange (CORE) team is honored to receive this award and humbled by what it represents. We also want to recognize and thank all of those that have been great partners, collaborators, and supporters of this project. We look forward to growing and continuing our work together.
