Who We Are:
RRISA's vision is that refugee families will become stable, financially independent, and productive members of the community, while preserving the ethnic and cultural identity that supports their dignity and self-esteem. Our immediate goal is to enable families to become financially self-sufficient.
We answer the humanitarian call to serve those fleeing from persecution, war, famine and extreme poverty by helping with:
Immediate needs for shelter, food, clothes and medical care
Education and cultural orientation
Individual, family and community identity
RRISA encourages our community members to volunteer and donate their time and resources to take responsibility for improving the plight of displaced and uprooted people. We are a bridge between local resources and refugees worldwide.
