Portland Refugee Support Group

Mission

Our mission at PRSG is to empower refugees through education, life skills training, and social support. We focus on helping refugee families acclimate to life in America and become familiar with their community.

Bottom Line for Portland

Since 2016, our amazing team of volunteers has helped close to 400 refugees and immigrants of different ethnicities throughout the Portland area in securing housing, jobs, community support, and access to health and wellness services. COVID has presented a new challenge for the refugees in our community. PRSG is a necessary bridge to accessing foundational resources like food, rental assistance, medical care and mental health support.

“Ever since we became part of PRSG we have felt that we have a family that we can lean on when we find ourselves in a difficult position. We don't stress anymore because we know PRSG is there for us.” —Almasa

“If it wasn't for PRSG, my family would be homeless and hopeless. PRSG has helped us get back on our feet after my husband had surgery and supported us during a very difficult time.” —Yasmeen

“PRSG has helped my children improve in school and has helped my family when times were hard. I am not only talking about money, I am talking about friendship, support and kindness that we appreciate above all else.” —Fatima
