In the 2018 Arizona Refugee Resettlement Summit, the community expressed a need to create a space to share collective resources. This website serves as a centralized location for the community to share and access resources to help refugees thrive in our communities. RISP-Net was established in 2002 as a local advisory committee to a refugee family strengthening project in Tucson, Arizona. The coalition expanded its mission in 2005 to include all refugee groups in Tucson. It is currently comprised of more than 150 stakeholders from all systems serving refugees, including health care, public education, law enforcement, Department of Economic Security, resettlement agencies, public library, and refugees themselves. Its stated purpose is to to illuminate the issues impacting the successful acculturation of refugee families in Arizona and to work collaboratively for positive systems change.
