OUR VISION

WRC’s vision is for every Congolese refugee family settled in Rhode Island to have their basic needs covered and participate fully in society on an equal basis with non-refugee families.

WHO WE ARE

  • Women’s Refugee Care (WRC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization providing services and support to refugee families from the Great Lakes Region of Africa (Congo, Burundi and Rwanda) – referred to as ECGLC – who reside in Rhode Island.  
  • Based on the belief that strong and informed women and mothers promote healthy and productive families and communities, WRC has a special focus on women, girls and promoting gender equality. 

 

OUR MISSION

  • To facilitate the transition for refugees, particularly girls and women, to life in the United States by helping them become self-sufficient and productive members of the American society while maintaining their cultural and ethnic identities.
  • To promote gender equality among the refugee community.
  • To advocate for the needs of refugees in the US.
  • To serve as a resource for agencies and groups to foster a greater understanding of the refugee community in the state of Rhode Island.
