& Vision

Our Mission:
We resettle refugees in Nebraska and provide them with the support they need to become self-sufficient.

We are a community-based, Nebraska 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation.

Our Vision:
To help people fleeing violence and persecution in their country, people who have given up so much to work towards the American Dream. We are a catalyst in welcoming these immigrants and refugees into Nebraska and in doing so we hope to create a stronger and more diverse community for all of us.

Show your support with these shirts.

We’ve created Refugees Welcome and Immigrants Welcome t-shirts to show support for our refugee and immigrant family, friends and neighbors. Buy a t-shirt and spread the love. Part of the proceeds go to REC!
