RefugeeOne creates opportunity for refugees fleeing war, terror, and persecution to build new lives of safety, dignity, and self-reliance.
Since 1982 RefugeeOne has welcomed more than 18,000 refugees and walks alongside them from the moment they land at O'Hare International Airport—welcoming them to Chicago and providing furnished apartments, English classes, job search support, mental health care, youth programming, and mentors to help them adjust to life in the U.S.
RefugeeOne's primary focus is to assist these resilient individuals in becoming an independent, self-supporting member of their new community.
Your gifts create life-changing opportunities for refugees. Give now to help refugees facing uncertainty in this time of need!
About The Organizer
My name is Nerissa Dansou, and as someone who migrated to Chicago from Togo 16 years ago, I understand the plight of refugees and the challenges one faces when navigating a foreign land. This is a cause near and dear to my heart and I hope you will join me.
Thank you for your support. Please note that all proceeds from this campaign will be going to RefugeeOne.
