Ways To Get Involved

Thanks for subscribing!

You are invited to participate in this exciting enterprise!  Especially needed are used sewing machines in working condition, tools, fabric, and thread—and, of course, money to make it possible to support our clients as broadly as possible.


Volunteer opportunities include teaching, classroom support, sewing machine maintenance, donations sorting, and more.

Our dream now is to begin a class in minor home repairs—to provide skills and tools for family home care and potential jobs.

In-Kind Donations

Thank you for considering Once We Were Refugees for your in-kind donations.  These donations are a very important part of our ministry.


Volunteers Needed

All of the staff for Once We Were Refugees are volunteers.   This allows us to use all donations directly for the benefit of the refugees.


Monetary Donations

As this ministry grows, we have more volunteers and we are able to accept more students, our financial needs also grow.
