More Information:

The Arizona Refugee Community Center (ARCC) is a registered non-profit 501(c)(3) organization which has been dedicated to helping the refugee community in Arizona since 1993, and became a non-profit in 2000. We coordinate projects and services to assist all refugees to become fully integrated and self-sufficient in their new communities. The refugee community we serve is very diverse and includes people from Vietnam, Bosnia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Somali, Sudan, Ethiopia, and Cuba.

We provide several programs for refugees of all ages including English classes, employment development, homework assistance for youth, and support for elderly refugees and for victims of torture. The ARCC has assisted many members in the community to gain employment, obtain affordable housing, and have opportunities for youth to gather. We also provide assistance with translation and advocacy for 'daily living', doctor's appointments, school appointments, and other situations where language or culture may be a barrier.
