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. 


Summer time is the best! If you know a refugee, find a way to include them in your favorite summertime activities.

-Take them to lagoon
-Invite them over for a barbecue
-Drop off a bag of popsicles
-Pick them up and go for a hike
-Go get ice cream cones
-Sign them up for swimming lessons with your kids
-Make s’mores with them

In return, ask them about things they like to do in the summer and join them.

65,000 refugees call Utah home. We are grateful to the many people and organizations that help them as they work to create a home and safe place for their family. Thank you! ...

It’s HOT! Many refugee families are having a hard time keeping cool. Consider buying a fan off our registry to help.

We are gearing up for this major initiative to help refugees feel prepared for school. Each year we have distributed 2,500-5,000 Back Pack Kits to local refugee students.

This is the Refugee Back to School Backpack Kit we will be collecting for refugee students this year. This is a great project for families, neighborhoods, church and service groups. Last year we collected and distributed 5,000 of these much needed backpacks.

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.

We will accept these starting June 30th and until July 28th. Please do not bring them to us before that or after that. We have limited space as our Sharehouse is not large.

Happy Father’s Day to the many refugee fathers who have sacrificed so much for their families. ...

Happy World Refugee Day! As an organization we honor refugees across the globe. Many of whom have experienced incredible obstacles. We remain committed as a nonprofit to help refugees here in Utah to live happy, self sufficient and fulfilling lives.

We are grateful for all of you who help in that effort!
