“I have hope for the first time after losing my sight.”

This quote from a former ESL student whose tutor was also blind, sums up so much of what we do and why. Whether it is tutoring English, guiding someone through the process to become a citizen, or helping elder immigrants to feel more connected and secure – at the core it is about making real and lasting connections between people. We are committed to accompanying people along their path, providing whatever support they may need (or connecting them to other sources of support), and demonstrating that we value them and celebrate their presence in our lives. Each year, our volunteers and staff make a real and lasting difference in the lives of more than 300 refugees and immigrants. You can be part of that by making a donation to support their work.
