Upon fleeing persecution, war, or violence, refugees often face an overwhelming resettlement process in their new communities. As a consequence, long-term health issues are often not addressed. We deliver informative and educational health-themed workshops to newcomers and refugees in effort to support and promote healthy lifestyles.
By raising awareness of the many barriers to health care faced by resettled refugees, we encourage dialogue in an effort to break down these barriers.
We organize fundraising initiatives to support local refugee resettlement agencies with their newcomer support services. If you are a community agency, contact us to learn about how we can support you!
