Blacksburg Refugee Partnership (Civic)


The Blacksburg Refugee Partnership was formed in the summer of 2016. Our members are concerned about the tragic events unfolding and escalating in Syria and other parts of the mid-East as well as the incredible amount of suffering in refugee camps formed in response to that violence. We feel we need to help and that Blacksburg, with its welcoming nature and diverse population, is ideal to support refugee families. We are now 300 members strong and have partnerships with a dozen faith and another ten local community organizations.

Our approach is not to simply bring families to Blacksburg, but to truly resettle them. We consider it our responsibility to help them until they are integrated in the community, including teaching them about American culture, enrolling children in school, helping with health care, and placing adults in jobs.

All of our work is 100% volunteer contributions of time, effort, household items, and funds. We are grateful for the tremendous generosity that this community has shown. We welcome new volunteers for this important and rewarding work, and we gratefully request your continued financial contributions.
