PRSG June 2019 Newsletter

Dear friends,

Happy June, everyone! Over this past year, we have made many changes. One of these was to establish the vision, mission, and core values of PRSG. We wanted to share them with everyone in case you had not seen them:VISION A community where refugees feel they belong – a place where they are safe, prosperous, and able to pursue happiness.MISSION 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.CORE VALUES Respect, compassion, community collaboration, diversity and inclusion, integrity, trustEach day our volunteers help create a world where this vision is possible. We are continually grateful for the work each of you does.

Refugees Welcome Act

We were thrilled to join faith leaders, Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon, IRCO, Catholic Charities, Lutheran Community Services NW, and refugees to advocate for House Bill 2508, the Refugees Welcome Act.
