Giving Activity

Mission

For the Nations Refugee Outreach exists to provide education and family services that help meet the practical needs of refugees and to share with them the gospel of Jesus Christ. Our approach is an endeavor to enhance lives of refugees holistically, better preparing them for successful life in the United States, to see them obtain a better quality of life and contribute meaningfully to our community.

Needs

During 2023-24, we will continue established programs like Adult ESL, preschool, and childcare classes, as well as after-school & summer programs for children ages K-8th. We will also continue mentorship, internship, and Bible studies for teens. All of these initiatives are large undertakings but are so integral to providing quality services for all ages of our refugee neighbors. Financial aid will be used for programs for children, youth and adults, including costs associated with curriculum, enrichment activities, Bible lessons and operating costs.
