Utah Refugee Connection

Helping people learn

Last year over 1,000 people attended refugee cultural nights.

Utah Refugee Connection

Helping people serve

Last year we coordinated over 34,000 hours of service benefiting refugees.

Helping people give

In conjunction with Granite School District’s Educational Equity Department, we collected and distributed over $800,000 in goods and services to the refugee community last year.

We create meaningful connections between refugees, the community, and public and private organizations that support refugees in developing self-sufficient and fulfilling lives. 


We are ready again to start our back to school kit drive. Last year we distributed over 6000 backpacks to refugee students preparing for a new school year.

We would love your help!🙏🏼♥️

Here are a few guidelines.

📚We appreciate completed back packs. Extra items can be brought to us separately.
📚New pack packs please. No drawstring bags. We’ve had trouble with these falling apart. And these backpacks need to last the entire year.
📚Gender neutral bags appreciated.

Many drop spots are homes that volunteered to help. Be courteous and only drop off during daylight hours and backpacks kits only. Contactless donation appreciated, if you have more than 20 back packs please bring them directly to our Sharehouse. Message us with questions.

We want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to @rudygobert27 and @rudyskidsfoundation for supporting local refugees.

He always found ways to LEARN about, SERVE and GIVE to the Utah Refugee Community! Over the years refugee youth attended games, received backpacks and school supplies and even a few computers because of him! Thank you again Rudy!

You will be missed! @utahjazz and @nbacares

This remarkable soul came to the United States without parents. He was raised by an amazing refugee foster care family. He recently graduated from high school and received the Utah Jazz scholarship. We were able to help connect him to a computer that will help him on his journey! Congrats! We love supporting efforts to help refugee teens find healthy pathways to success! We will be sharing more opportunities to help youth in the future!
