Do you love babies? We do too! Refugee moms in Tucson often give birth without their family or support systems around. You get to be a faithful friend and help a mother-to-be feel loved and cared for as she welcomes her new baby.

Can you imagine coming to a new place and feeling alone? Many of our newest neighbors feel that way. We partner families to walk along side and develop relationships with families through fun events and visiting each other.

International Kids Kamp
IKK is an annual summer program full of fun and learning for Muslim and Christian youth from all over the world who have come to live in Tucson. Our program includes fun songs, games, crafts, skits, and stories. We study about men of God who are common in the Bible and the Quran!
Trauma Informed Care Groups
Our refugee youth and adults have been through layers of trauma having run from their homeland, and resettled into an unknown country, language, and culture. Our trauma care program seeks to build community, conversations and skills to cope with the past in order to thrive in the future. Developed by professionals in the field, this 8 week curriculum helps people deal with their own trauma, recognize trauma in others and how to help their children cope on their way to resilience from traumatic situations.
Tutoring for Adults
Learning English is an essential skill that refugees need in order to be successful in Tucson. We offer tutoring to adults studying English and we also help them practice for their citizenship tests. You can aid in creating boundless opportunities for refugee men and women by volunteering as a tutor!
Tutoring for Youth
Imagine moving to a new country and not knowing the language and then trying to do schoolwork in that new language! For many of our refugee kids this is a huge challenge. We offer tutoring to all ages of youth. Will you invest in the future of a refugee today?
