This profile provides general information about Liberians—their history, culture, language, and resettlement experiences—as well as information about the new arrivals in particular. The profile is intended primarily for service providers who will be assisting the refugees in their new communities in the United States. But others may find it useful, too. Teachers may use it to educate students about a people whose history is so closely intertwined with that of the United States. Local government agencies—the courts, the police, the housing and health departments—may use it to help their staff better understand, and thus better serve, the new arrivals. 2005. (74 pp).
