Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to help every refugee family in our community thrive. That means that across generations, all members of the family are full, contributing members of our community:

-They have a healthy life balance

-They're constructive participants in our society

-They're self-sufficient

-They're able to advocate and lead

-They're accepted by the community

In 2019, we set out design a roadmap to help every single refugee family in our community thrive. We researched best practices from around the country, we listened to our community partners and we learned from experts. Then, together with our refugee families, we designed the Path to Thriving, a plan to help refugees move from survivors to citizens.

Over the next 3 years, we've identified three main areas where we will need to develop
