What We Do
We will accomplish our mission by focusing efforts our key flagship programs: Individual Stories: One at a Time, and Helping the Helpers. We stand behind visionary volunteers and their migrant/refugee community in building new lives, away from the trauma and violence they fled.
By learning new skills, and offering the gifts of music and art and the transformational practice of yoga in the shelters, they can sustain their families and create a sense of meaning and purpose that leads to healing and resilience.
“One Story at a Time is a shining example of what can happen when ordinary but caring people with the courage of their convictions come together to assert what is ethically right and humane. One a small scale, One Story at a Time is what we must do nationwide to reclaim our national dream and our moral center. I am proud to be part of this highly successful effort to give aid, hope, and comfort to those who seek refuge from tyranny or grinding poverty in America, just as my parents once did when they came from Ukraine.”
