Our Mission

We seek to address the healthcare disparities that arise from the geographic, linguistic, and cultural isolation experienced by the refugee and asylee communities in the greater Phoenix area . We achieve this through our 4 pillars: (1): Engaging with the communities directly, (2) Educating them on health knowledge gaps, (3) Empowering them through our initiatives and (4) Providing them primary care.
