Refugee One to Honor the Refugee Project and Hold Upcoming Workshop

We have exciting news!

RefugeeOne, the largest refugee resettlement organization in Illinois, will be honoring the work of the Hyde Park Refugee Project at their gala April 27th!

Following is an excerpt from the gala invitation:

HONOREE

RefugeeOne is proud to honor The Hyde Park Refugee Project. Since this volunteer-led organization got started in 2016, we have partnered with them to help light the path forward for five refugee families from Syria and the Congo.

Their creative, comprehensive efforts – embedding tutors in local schools, building a summer camp, and connecting refugees with job opportunities – are an incredible extension of RefugeeOne’s work, brought to life by committed volunteers. They have engaged more than 100 individuals, plus organizations including the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools, local churches and synagogues, and small business owners. Together, they welcome refugees into their community, not only as neighbors, but as friends.

We would love for you to join us at the event and support our partner agency and the work they do.

Tickets are available here.

REFUGEE ONE WORKSHOP

Refugee One is also holding a Trauma-informed care workshop here in Hyde Park for anyone who is interested in learning more about how to work with refugees. We are hosting the workshop at Augustana Church on April 15th from 6:30-8pm.
