Helping people learn

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. 


Here is Marta! She is a wonderful lady full of light. She attended our International Womens Day lunch. She is a single mom working hard to make her way. It was great the help connect her to resources. She wants to get her GED and move toward better employment.

This is why what we do is so important. Incentives kits help refugees attend helpful classes and lead them to healthier and more self sufficient outcomes. We love connecting New Americans to helpful resources.

Thank you for all the things are followers do to help with creating belonging for refugees in our community.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! ☘️🌈

This quote seemed applicable. Refugees are some of the most “unlucky” simply because of the circumstances they were born in to.

Thanks for helping the “unlucky” among us!

We loved gathering as women to celebrate International Women’s Day. We had food from several different countries from @namash_swahili_cuisine , @nooralshamslc and @kurdish_katering. We had Asha Parekh from @utah.refugee.center give some inspiring thoughts. We danced and everyone left with a blanket from @minkycouture. We were honored to be hosted by Columbus Adult Learning Center. We had amazing partners @kengarff and @gsdfamilycenters!

Thanks to @kristilburton for donating her photography skills and time to document this special day of shared global sisterhood.
