Project Officer/Social Worker - Athens

Catholic Relief Services

Greece Outreach Program

Position Title: Project Officer- Social Worker
Department: UIA
Job Location: Athens, Greece
Reports To: HFU Team Leader

About CRS:

Catholic Relief Services (CRS) was founded in 1943 by the US Catholic Conference of Bishops States to assist the poor and vulnerable overseas. CRS has been working in Greece since 2015 in response to the refugee and migrant crisis, working in partnership with the national and local diocesan Caritas organizations in Greece.

CRS has been awarded to put into practice an integration project called Curing the Limbo, aiming to implement a dynamic and innovative model for integration that allows refugees to become socially active. This can be achieved through attending courses in Greek, English, Creative Expression and ICT, gaining access to affordable housing, and receiving professional counseling services tailored to their needs. Refugees are thus integrated in the life of the city, by interacting with active citizen groups and participating in public events held in the neighbourhoods of Athens. In coming together, the refugees and the city exit their “limbo” state, boosting activity, cooperation, and co-existence.

Curing the Limbo (2018-2021) is a European pilot program of the city of Athens implemented with the strategic partnership of the University of Athens, the Catholic Relief Services (CRS), the International Rescue Committee (IRC) and the Athens Development and Destination Management Agency (ADDMA). This project is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund through the Urban Innovative Actions (UIA) initiative
