The Rochester Refugee Resettlement Services (RRRS) provides services and opportunities to ensure assimilation of refugees into our community. It is their mission is to make our new neighbors successful and happy here in Rochester as they contribute to our community with their culture and experience. While numbers of refugees coming into the US has been reduced, the numbers they are serving in the Rochester, NY have gone up. They do not receive much funding and depend on donations and volunteers.
Thank you to everyone who enthusiastically stepped up to help on short notice. We hope to assist in more projects like this in the near future.
