Organization Name:  Freedom House

We are the only agency in the United States that provides all services needed by those fleeing persecution in their home country Each year, hundreds of men, women and children arrive at Freedom House seeking shelter and help in rebuilding their lives in safety and freedom. They typically arrive exhausted, hungry and traumatized, with little more than the clothes they are wearing. Freedom House has the capacity to house 35 people at a time as they seek asylum. However, we take great pride in not turning away anyone who is eligible for asylum, which means we nearly always operate above capacity.

Organization Overview:  We've all seen the devastating images of the millions of Syrians being brutalized by war, displaced from their homes, and then driven to other countries, many of which are simply too overwhelmed to provide for them. We pledge to marshal the volunteer efforts across the state to address the needs of incoming refugees. Please join us in this effort to help bring comfort and safety to these families and children who are running for their lives. Mission Statement Our mission is to provide humanitarian and economic support to refugees as they reach self-sufficiency in Michigan. Established in 2015, the Syrian American Rescue Network (SARN) is a nonprofit organization that seeks to assist refugees on their journey through cultural adjustment with the goal of assisting refugees in becoming self-sufficient in the State of Michigan. Our team is made up of passionate individuals working hard to create a peaceful and just world. We are a community-based nonprofit organization that aims to restore hope and opportunity for refugee families. Our members and volunteers are passionate, generous and committed to this mission. The group does not have a political or religious affiliation. Our resettlement program provides humanitarian and economic support to refugees in reaching self-sufficiency in Michigan. We achieve this goal through linking refugees with employment services, housing, English education, furniture and household items, transportation, assistance with emergencies, and acculturation advice and consultation. We seek to work with a network of providers in Metro Detroit to advocate and strengthen social services for refugees living in the city and surrounding suburbs. Currently SARN is focused on helping the Syrian families arriving in Southeast Michigan.

Organization Overview:  Since 1961, the Chaldean American Ladies of Charity (CALC) has continually assisted the needy families of the metro Detroit area. The CALC is a nonprofit charitable organization that operates with over 98% of donations going directly to the less fortunate. We focus our efforts on enhancing the lives of the people in our community. Our time and volunteer efforts are spent helping those in need, encouraging our youth, providing care for senior citizens, and maintaining our culture within the diverse community in which we live. Metro Detroit’s 120,000 Chaldeans are the largest concentration outside the Middle East. The community’s growth spanning a century reflects economic, social and geopolitical factors. The majority of Chaldean Americans live in Michigan, although there are many in Illinois, Arizona, California and other countries like Australia, England and Mexico. Although Chaldean Americans constitute the bulk of Iraqi immigrants living in the United States, they represent less than 10 percent of the population of Iraq. While the vast majority of Iraqis, are Arab Muslim, Chaldeans are Roman Catholic. They also differ from other Iraqis in that their ancestral language is not Arabic but a dialect of Aramaic, also referred to as Chaldean, Assyrian or Syriac. The country of Chaldea was an ancient land in southern Babylonia, on the Persian Gulf near the delta of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers in the Middle East. In biblical times the name was applied to all of Babylonia & Mesopotamia. It is present day Iraq. CALC MISSION STATEMENT We are Chaldean American women energized by working together and with others to provide help and hope to those in need. We strive to preserve our heritage and enrich the community through awareness and advocacy, education and advice, and emotional and economic support. Our vision is to strengthen and preserve the Chaldean family by ensuring that all generations have access to necessary resources and services. The CALC has many volunteers that spend a substantial amount of time helping others and trying to raise funds and awareness of our mission. If you’d like to volunteer your time with the CALC, click here to fill out a volunteer information form. We appreciate your help!
