What We Do
We are dedicated to supporting refugees and immigrants from across the globe who have fled violence and persecution, providing them with culturally and linguistically appropriate services. Our work helps them establish a solid foundation from which they can rebuild safe and sustainable lives in the DC metropolitan area. Over the past year, we provided essential assistance to many newcomers, with the highest numbers originating from Afghanistan, Ukraine, Syria, El Salvador, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Through our commitment we strive to help all clients become becoming independent, contributing members of their new community.
