Local office staff and dedicated volunteers welcome arriving refugee families at the airport, provide them with furnished housing, give them appropriate clothing, and orient them on how to stay safe in their new homes and community. Beyond ensuring refugees’ basic needs are met, the R&P program helps connect newcomers to health services, schools for children, language classes for adults, job readiness training, public benefits enrollment, and more.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Oct 01 - Sep 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
