Funders & Partners

Our agency receives support from various funders and partners across Ohio and the larger New American community. As an organization dedicated to serving the refugee and immigrant population, we are grateful for the opportunity to work with supportive groups, organizations, and corporations. Thanks to their support, we can continue providing valuable resources to at-risk populations. Our entire agency is an affiliate of the Hebrew Immigration Aid Society (HIAS), a Jewish organization dedicated to finding refugees safety and freedom. We align our values with their mission to rescue vulnerable populations from danger and provide them protection. All three offices are also funded by the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), an office that focuses on providing opportunities for New Americans so they can successfully integrate in the United States.  Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) also funds all three offices in Franklin, Cuyahoga, and Lucas County. Additionally, our organization receives funding from Ohio State Refugee Services for our comprehensive integration services. We are eternally grateful for HIAS, ORR, ODJFS, and State Refugee Services for their continuous support!
