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.
EMBARC helps fill the gaps by connecting refugees with the education and resources they need to integrate into the community and realize the full potential of their skills.
It takes a village to raise a child, but first, you need to build the village. If you have skills to lend or time to spare, there are families who need you. It takes very little time to make a big difference in someone’s life, and we’d love to work with you!
We’ll keep you up to date on the latest and greatest.
