Everyone has seen the headlines and photos about refugees abroad  

How can your contribution make a difference?

There are refugees and immigrants with disabilities here in Oregon, right now, who need your help.

With your help, refugees and immigrants with disabilities who are unable to be self-sufficient right away can live with dignity and strive to become self-sufficient.

With your help, refugees and immigrants with disabilities in Oregon can afford basic food and housing, which in turn enables their children to realize their own dreams.

Your contribution makes a difference in the lives of refugees and immigrants with disabilities in Oregon, every day.  

 
 

What Your Donation Will Accomplish

How else can you help?

Host a House Party

Would you like to meet new people from places around the globe, who now call Oregon home?

Would you like to sample the foods and cultures of their homelands?

We’re looking for folks to host House Parties to make friends and raise funds for RISE.

If hosting doesn’t fit your home or interests, how about helping out at one of the planned 2018 RISE Board Member House Parties?

We’re looking for volunteers to assist at the parties—you’ll get to sample some wonderful food and meet great folks from around the world.

If you’d like to learn more or are ready to sign up, please contact Linda at Linda@riseNW.org!

 

Volunteer Opportunities

We’re looking for folks willing to be trained to accompany refugee and immigrant applicants.
