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. 


This is our dear friend Halima. She is one of the wisest women we know. She currently works for the Refugee Service Office within Workforce Services. She is the refugee women coordinator. We have worked with her for many years and are so grateful for her friendship and mentoring.

She helps the many refugee women who come from all over the world navigate their way as they begin life here. She is smart, compassionate and really has a heart of gold. We can rely on her and are grateful for her incredible influence for good in the community.

The German @christkindlmarktslc is going on now through December 4 at This is the Place Park. It’s a great outside cultural market to liven the holidays. There are vendors and amazing food.

They also have an service opportunity called the St. Martin’s Project with @abbypalmercox and @showuputah. To find out more about the event and how they are helping refugees and kids in foster care, take a listen to this podcast.
