About Us

OUR MISSION

image98

Refuge for Nations is a nonprofit social enterprise committed to empowering refugee and immigrant women in the United States.  We provide all the support needed for women to not just survive, but to thrive in the new life ahead of them. From breaking down language barriers with our ESL (English as a Second Language) courses to learning skilled trades that leads to eventual employment, our organization empowers women with the tools needed to build a meaningful life for themselves as well as their families. 

OUR VISION

image99

Through strategic partnerships with the greater community, it is our aim to grow employment opportunities for refugee and immigrant women who may not immediately thrive in traditional work settings.  We hope to be able to provide new avenues for employment, assistance with housing and any other support needed to settle comfortably. Through these efforts, we also look for ways we can give back or contribute to the greater community.
