Our services grow opportunity for nearly 2,400 people who have sought refuge in the U.S. With the support of donors like you, we help our newcomer friends and neighbors graduate from high school, improve their English skills, reduce social isolation, and successfully navigate their new lives in the U.S. 

Donate using the form below (card/PayPal), or mail a check to 870 Market St. #718, San Francisco CA 94102. Please contact Julia@reftrans.org or call 415.989.2151 if you have any questions. Thank you for your support!

When every turn brings something new (a language, a tradition, a rule), RIT is there to help. That’s why I give.
