Where are refugees from?
Refugees flee from areas of crisis such as Burma, Nepal, Sudan, Eritrea and Syria. Many are relocated to Dallas in a neighborhood called Vickery Meadows.
Why are refugees important?
These brave men and women are people like you and I with hopes and dreams for a future. They bring a wealth of diversity that enriches our culture.
What do refugees need?
Although the US offers them safety and a new start, refugees often arrive with no resources or guidance. They need our help accessing available resources and adapting to their new home.
We teach refugee women how to sew and work in a business environment.
Educational programs, mentoring, counseling and job placement services are available to each woman at VTC.
All refugees earn fair wages for their time and the clothing they produce.
