Who are we?
Who We Are
The Refugee Support Program was created by South Wyoming United Methodist Church in 2011 to support local refugees (Grand Rapids, MI area) in adjusting to life in their new country so that they are able to be physically and emotionally self- sufficient.
Thrive: a refugee support program. Helping families thrive in our community as our neighbors.
Our plan is to partner with other local agencies to assist with some of the needs this population has in order to allow them to acclimate themselves to this country, preferable while keeping the best parts of their own culture alive.
What we do?
This program will connect refugees to services they would otherwise not be able to access in addition to providing programs to fill in some of the gaps in services for this population.
