Employment Opportunities for Refugees in Akron

AKRON, Ohio – Companies, particularly those with work that doesn’t require a mastery of English, often want to hire refugees, says Scott Piepho, interim executive director of Asian Services in Action.

Case Farms, a poultry processing company near Akron, is one of the big companies that hires. Some stay there long-term. Others move on to other companies and professions.

Many move as they secure better jobs, but they maintain connections to the neighborhoods.
