We support refugees through English language instruction, homework assistance for kids, mentorship and referrals for practical needs, women’s empowerment, and cultural programming.
Refugees coming to the United States find themselves in a new environment where they don’t speak or understand the language and culture. They are pulled between two worlds — the beloved homeland they left behind and their new home. Refugees today are often subject to political whims that can place them in precarious situations and threaten their future.
Everyone deserves to live in a safe and secure place and be given opportunities to succeed. Refugee Assistance Alliance (RAA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2017 to support underserved refugee populations in South Florida by providing services such as in-home tutoring, cultural programming and special activities. Programming under development includes a referral system to social services and expanded women’s empowerment initiatives.
A non-religious, non-political organization, RAA works primarily with refugees from Syria, but also has clients from Iraq, Myanmar (Burma), Palestine, Ethiopia and the Sudan. It is open to all refugees who lack an established support network regardless of nationality, ethnicity, religion, or language. Refugees in need of support or community groups assisting refugees who need support can contact us for help at firstname.lastname@example.org.
