REFUGEE & IMMIGRANT SERVICES NORTHWEST (RISNW) IN THE NEWS
Beginning with the arrival of families from Afghanistan in the fall of 2021 and now Ukrainians who are seeking refuge in the US, Refugee & Immigrant Services Northwest has been quick to respond with a host of resettlement and other services, to help our newest residents. We also had great media coverage from both TV and print media which gives a snapshot of the work we are doing and as well as highlighting the stories of a few of the families we are serving.

A Huge Thank You to All of our Donors and Funders!
You are amazing.
We appreciate the tremendous support from our Community!
