Phoenix Refugee Assistance Programs

How You Can Help

You are an important part of bringing miracles to refugees in central and northern Arizona. Your support helps refugees gain their independence and become productive members of their new communities. Below are some of the ways you can help.

Item Donations

Our refugee clients often arrive with little more than a suitcase. They need everything to begin a new life—furnishings, dishes, linens, toiletries. Your donation of new and gently used items is tax-deductible and pick up is free. To learn more, contact Dawn Dishman 602-749-4463 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

Hire a Refugee

Refugees are an excellent resource for employers. They bring a wonderful diversity and work ethic to the workplace. They are willing and grateful for the opportunity to work.
