EMPOWER REFUGEES IN YOUR COMMUNITY TO GROW AND THRIVE!
Every year, thousands of refugees, asylum seekers, survivors of human trafficking, and unaccompanied minors arrive in southern California. In partnership with the U.S. government, the International Institute of Los Angeles helps these resilient individuals restore their freedom, dignity, and independence through comprehensive services. The government resources offered to new arrivals, however, are very limited and makes building their new lives here all the more difficult. Each refugee receives a mere $1,200 from the U.S. for their initial needs, which does not cover nearly enough in southern California.
With your help, we can provide our new neighbors with a solid foundation to grow and thrive. When they can look beyond survival, they are enabled to bring their unique skills, talents, and the richness of their cultures to our communities. As they thrive, we all thrive.
