REC provides the social services and educational support that fleeing families need to get off to a new start. This includes: resettlement, English second language classes, cultural orientation, employment readiness instruction, budgeting, understanding public transportation and driver’s education training .

The mission of the Refugee Empowerment Center is to resettle and empower refugees to become self-sufficient through direct services and educational programs.
REC envisions a world where communities welcome all refugees and immigrants.
We see ourselves as catalysts in the work of building welcoming communities. We aim to build relationships and a cross-cultural understanding between the Omaha and refugee communities.
We are a community-based, Nebraska 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation.
