Iraqi Mutual Aid Society

Iraqi Mutual Aid Society

The Iraqi Mutual Aid Society helps a variety of Iraqi's (usually refugees) to assimilate to life in the United States. In order to assist this purpose, they put together a gift basket that contains some kitchen items, and provides them with classes on American Culture as well as offering children classes on Arabic.

Joshua Tyack, an employee at Iraqi Mutual Aid, works on assisting the refugees and other Iraqi's in finding a job. He says that it is his job to offer a path to the middle class.

He does this by finding people jobs befitting their skill levels and helping them work their way up as they see fit. The higher their skill levels, the more he is able to do. They help people put together cover letters, put together an American resume, and find out what classes are needed to keep the degrees or certificates up to date once they are in the country.

            For more information, you can visit their website, or call them at (773) 409-4597.
