That's why we teach refugees English and U.S. citizenship free of charge.
Through English refugees can connect with our local communities and proudly contribute by volunteering with dignity.
Just because refugees have been legally resettled in America doesn’t mean life automatically becomes great.
- They’re required to learn English, find employment, and assimilate into a new society, all within months of arriving.
- Most don’t have a single American friend.
- A split widens in many refugee families when parents struggle to speak into the lives of their English-speaking children.
