The Refugee Development Center is able to provide valuable services because of the personal contributions of our generous community supporters. Your financial support helps us provide the tools necessary for newcomer families to succeed. We thank you!

Your donation will support expanding in-demand services at the Center that are currently at 100% capacity, such as English, early literacy, and citizenship classes; health and housing navigation services; and programming such as daily sewing lab, twice-weekly tea time, and field trips for children.
