Getting Involved

Make an Impact

Get Involved

Young refugees are individuals who have fled their home countries due to conflict, persecution, or natural disasters. Despite facing challenges, they are often resilient and determined to rebuild their lives. It is important to support and empower them, and provide them with the resources and opportunities they need thrive.

MakING a Donation

You can support refugees by donating to organizations like ours that provide them with legal assistance, access to healthcare, education, and social support. Your donation can make a big difference in the lives of refugees. Together, we can help them rebuild their lives and find hope.

What we do

Our Impact


Basic necessities such as food and clothing will be provided as part of the homing process for refugees. We offer assistance with locating work, registering for schools, and picking up the local language.

Intergating into american life

For refugees, trying to integrate into American life can be a difficult process because they frequently encounter language and cultural barriers in addition to the trauma of displacement. Sports and activities are a really helpful, because they help refugees by getting involved with the community.


For refugees, it is really important to for them to get involved. We have registered over 100 kids for the upcoming fall soccer season, and also sent 100 kids to summer camp! 


We do many food drives, and provide donations from food pantries. By providing resources and support to refugee families, we hope to build their community as they establish their new lives in America.
