COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

Refugee Networking & Social Events

Through our quarterly networking and social outreach events, ReR partners with faith communities, civic organizations, and other nonprofits to provide networking events for refugees. One of these is our annual community resources fair for World Refugee Day.
