In the basement of a United Methodist Church in Durham, North Carolina, Julia Hause teaches a class in financial literacy for refugees, including Shukri Ahmed Omar, a newly arrived Somali refugee. They are practicing what to say when you call your bank to find out the balance on your debit card. Hause works for Church World Service, which resettles refugees in North Carolina and elsewhere in the United States.
