Helping refugees plant deeper roots in West Michigan.
The Refugee Education Center (REC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit founded in 2006 by immigrants and refugees to Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Our main objectives include:
- Empowering refugee families to succeed in school and life.
- Helping refugee children finish school and become self-sufficient.
- Providing a place to socialize and strengthen community ties for refugee families.
- Fostering a lasting sense of community that will benefit both refugees and non-refugees.
- Facilitating leadership development in the refugee community.
We are supported in our efforts by many donors, volunteers, schools and community partners.
