A refugee has fled persecution. They have survived wars, trauma, deprivation. Lived in the uncertainty of refugee camps. Resettled by the US government, they have been given a chance for a better life.
But obstacles remain.
Nations Ministry Center is committed to helping refugees rebuild their lives.
Nations Ministry is affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (USA). All our services are nonsectarian; we welcome all people no matter their background.
HOW YOU REBUILD LIVES
ROAD TO CITIZENSHIP
Our citizenship journey program helps refugees, who are legal immigrants, acquire green cards and eventually US citizenship. We provide application preparation, civics classes, interview coaching, and other supports to help refugees remain legal immigrants and become US citizens. Our immigration services are recognized by the Department of Justice.
As more of us live longer lives, we all want older Americans to have the opportunity to lead meaningful, connected lives.
Thanks to your generosity and the leadership giving of the West End Home Foundation, we began serving Nepali elders in 2018 through our innovative Front Porch program which combines culturally-relevant classroom experiences, enrichment events, and language-specific case management.
YOUTH LITERACY AND DEVELOPMENT
Our youth literacy program NATIONS ACADEMY and summer reading program THE BIG READ help refugee children learn to read better. We also provide a trauma-informed environment which encourage social-emotional development. We provide recreational therapy to our elementary school program and educate families about school choices.
