Our hope is to empower refugees in Arizona and provide them a platform to advocate for themselves. By giving them the tools and knowledge, we can help the refugee community to thrive in Arizona. We want to highlight issues pertaining to refugees to empower the community and promote refugees participation in advocating for themselves.

Why get involved?

Whether you’re a supporter of the refugee community or a refugee yourself, it is important to educate and advocate to make positive change within your community.

    Phoenix Refugee Connections

    Phoenix Refugee Connections is a network of Phoenix-area Christians motivated by Christ’s love to welcome the stranger and love their neighbors, specifically those with refugee status. We share resources and best practices, suggest opportunities to serve, educate and equip others to serve, and encourage each other in this joyful and sometimes challenging work. Our vision is to see our refugee neighbors flourish as God intended, supported by their host communities, with the Body of Christ leading by example and God being glorified above all.
