This organization is a resource for refugees in Des Moines. It mainly serves people from Liberia, Sudan, Egypt, Nepal, Indians and refugees from the Ivory Coast.

The organization could use volunteers to act as translators, which would require a minimal time commitment. To help with translation and English as a second language programs, contact the office for specific details.

While this organization is not an international organization, as a resource for refugees, it has further reaching ties and implications for the Des Moines community and Drake students looking for volunteer opportunities.
