FROM HARM TO HOPE
Through 2016, the Center for Refugee Settlement and Support welcomed approximately 300 political refugees each year through government contracts to provide resettlement services. Beginning in 2017, we stopped receiving new refugee arrivals and changed our name to the Center for Refugee Support, shifting our programs to support the many struggling refugee families already living in Albuquerque. We are dedicated to providing meaningful support to help these families achieve self-sufficiency and become integral members of our community.
The Center for Refugee Support now houses two programs: the Refugee Youth Mentoring Program which matches volunteer adult mentors with refugee children, and Team Refugee, which matches civic and religious organizations with refugee families to provide English practice, job assistance, and Cultural Orientation. For more information on the Youth Mentoring program, please contact Danielle Hernandez at email@example.com or 724-4609. For more information regarding Team Refugee, please contact Celia Yapita, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 724-4691
THANK YOU to the granting organizations that make our programs possible
