In 2016, 151 job placements for refugees resulted in over $1,200,000 in additional income for refugee families.
We've also saved 101 refugees $80,000 in immigration filing fees and helped refugees acquire green cards, become US citizens, and united families separated by conflict.
Nations Academy, our after-school and summer reading program, serves refugee children by providing homework help, individualized internet-based reading tutoring, summer reading intensives, and enrichment activities. In 2016, on average, each child improved 9 (out of 18 reading levels) Lexia levels and 58% improved their English grade--all an amazing achievement for children who have so much to overcome and are learning English for the first time!
