to Crossing the Divide’s Refugee Resource List!

This is a partial and growing list of organizations that I can recommend you rely on if you’d like to help the Afghan refugee population currently settling here in the United States. This is also a good place to start for my online class students when you design your community service project. I will keep this page updated with additional resources as I get them, and if you develop anyone you’d like to add to the list – please reach out with his/her contact information by email:

Thank you for helping us all – cross the divide!
