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. 


Our door is always open!!!

Because of you, all of the refugees coming and going today were given menstrual supplies, incentives for attending classes, much needed car seats and a few hugs. (This footage was just one hour out of 4 that we were open)

This humble door at our Sharehouse is a place where we hope that donors and refugees feel loved and welcome. Thank you for trusting us to distribute your donations to our refugee neighbors! We are humbled and grateful for your kindness and support! 🙏🏼♥️
