Refugee: "a person who ... owing to a well-founded fear of being persecuted on account of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group, or political opinion, is outside the country of their nationality, and is unable to or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to avail him/herself of the protection of that country."

HOW YOU CAN HELP
The best way to help is to show up on Tuesday's from 5:00 - 6:30 p.m. Our tutoring schedule is now online. We are also receiving donations of granola bars for snacks. Bring them with you on Tuesdays's or drop them off at the Ibarra Elementary school office with labeled (Refugee Tutoring c/o Melissa Phillips). Also, we could really use some whiteboard markers as well as educational games (found at places like Lakeshore Learning Store) to use with students when they are done with their homework. Games should focus on grade levels K-5 and should be literacy or math-based only.
WHO WE ARE
Teachers, community members, students (high school and college) and family members are joining together to support a small refugee community in the City Heights area. Find out more about us on our "About Us" page...
