To broaden our outreach to refugees in the greater Phoenix area, UUCP has entered into partnership with the International Rescue Committee. The IRC provides many services both financial and educational designed to help newly resettled refugees find jobs and adjust to their new surroundings in the US. UUCP’s Refugee Assistance Partnership will give our members a chance to use their skills as IRC volunteers in programs such as teaching English, job readiness and career coaching, citizenship study, and financial literacy to name just a few. We have also established an emergency fund for refugees in crisis and will participate in the IRC Holiday Giving Campaign. We can make a positive difference in refugees’ lives by sharing our time, talent and treasure with our new neighbors.  A presentation by the IRC will be held in October at the congregation to explain volunteer opportunities.
