Help Refugees this Holiday Season

“When you have more than you need, build a longer table, not a higher fence.”

Hope through aid

We act nimbly to fill in the gaps by providing critical aid including clean diapers, baby beds, newborn supplies, hygiene kits, and more. 

Your monthly giving sustains our work to provide families with these basic needs.

Empowerment through impact

We fund projects that improve the quality of life for refugee and asylum seeking families stuck in transition.

These projects include women-friendly spaces, early childhood learning centers, community gardens, and much more.
