Center of Light

Building Cultural Foundations in the Lives of Refugee Families

The Center of Light grant will offer a program building cultural foundations in the lives of refugees and their families. Center of Light seeks to connect refugees to resources, society and God and to culturally integrate them into society through a construction apprentice program. These efforts will offer refugees the opportunity for honorable employment (at a living wage) and housing while participating in the construction training program. Additionally, they (and their families) will be involved in an education effort to teach them English, how to better understand cultural barriers and to improve their life skills.
