Did you know?
After thorough vetting, the US resettles refugees based on vulnerability rather than their English ability. But when refugees arrive, they are legally mandated to become self-sufficient as quickly as possible (within months). How can someone with possibly little or no English ability become self-sufficient? How do we bridge that gap?
What can we do?
Give the over 70,000 refugees in Phoenix the ability to connect and contribute. In addition to self-sufficiency, English helps parents speak into their children’s lives who are immersed in American culture at school. A split in the family can appear when the parents get left behind.
Will you help?
We provide free English classes to refugees and supply all the needed materials, computers, and one-on-one volunteers. Abounding Service is entirely donation-based. Your gift helps refugees rebuild their lives through English!
