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.
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.
From women's clothing and accessories to baby products, our women are ready to serve you! We offer custom products for partners and other causes close to our heart. Our network of refugee and immigrant women work diligently to fill all orders with a strong sense of purpose, love and care. If you'd like to request our services for a special order, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
