Welcome

The Refugee Response (TRR) empowers refugees to become self-sufficient and contributing members of their new communities. The Refugee Response was formed to help refugees adjust to life in Northeast Ohio. We work to empower our area's growing newcomer population, particularly those here between three months and five years by providing opportunities to acquire the skills they need to succeed in their new communities.

A Year of Growth

TRR is continuing to grow and expand its reach to the resettled refugee communities in northeast Ohio. There are now more than 50 students served by our home tutoring program, ten students are receiving scholarships to attend top Cleveland schools, and this year our REAP program added two new trainees and distributed more than 11 tons of fresh produce to local businesses and individuals. This phenomenal progress would not be possible without the generous giving of our supporters. Please consider making a donation in any amount to help us continue making great strides ahead.
