Get the inside scoop!


Follow along this video series and learn why your donation matters. You’ll meet our staff, see an arrival at the airport and hear first-hand from a refugee what the resettlement process is like. Your donations will provide Project Refuge scholarships to refugees when they first arrive so that they can focus on learning English to set themselves up for future job success!

& Vision

Our Mission:
 To resettle refugees and provide them the support they need to thrive.

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

Our Vision:
To support peace-seekers fleeing violence and persecution as they work towards achieving their American Dream. To act as a catalyst in welcoming immigrants and refugees into Nebraska, and in so doing, create a stronger and more diverse community for all of us.  To ensure newcomers not only survive, but maximize their potential and rekindle their joy.

Wear your support!

We’ve created ‘Refugees Welcome’ and ‘Immigrants Welcome’ t-shirts to show support for Nebraska’s refugee and immigrant family, friends and neighbors. Buy a t-shirt and spread the love.
