EMBARC is a grassroots, community-based, non-profit organization founded by refugees and for refugees.

Connecting Refugees With Resources For Life

EMBARC’s mission is striving to help refugees expand their world of possibilities through advocacy, education and community development throughout Iowa. As Iowa’s first refugee-led social service organization, EMBARC offers support and resources for refugees in need. These resources include a wide range of educational and healthcare programs, as well as access to housing, food, job opportunities, mentoring and more. It’s all about building stronger refugee communities, which in turn helps build a stronger Iowa.
