How many served? Last year over 2000 unduplicated individuals through first quarter of FY17 over 775 individuals (300 families).
We do a little bit of everything. Interpretations, rranslations, referrals, collaborate with other agencies. Have a problem we MAY have a solution or know who can help.
Various volunteer opportunities. Depends on what the person wishes to do. Work with children, provide transportation for a refugee family, or work on fundraising opportunities. These are examples we try to match what people want to do with what services we normally provide.
