A community of refugees in Boise, Idaho welcomes the displaced with a transformational mentorship program.
In 2003, a community of refugees who had recently completed the arduous process of starting life in a new country decided to develop a mentorship program and resource sharing system for other displaced persons facing the same struggles. As a result, the Idaho Refugee Community Association (IRCA) was born.
IRCA provides free services such as translation, assistance in finding a job and preparing for interviews, access to English classes, and a number of other vital services. With the right tools and network, incoming refugees have a much easier time building their new life.
With this AWB grant, IRCA can continue their work, expand current programs and provide staff training. See firsthand the incredible impact IRCA has had on Idaho’s refugee population here.
