Help Local Refugees

Your compassion blesses you and them. A little bit of your time can make a world of difference.

Over 700 new refugees arrive in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties each year. They are fleeing terror and death and arrive with almost nothing.

Interfaith San Ramon Valley (ISRV) is helping the local refugee resettlement agencies. Please give a little of your time or a donation. You will be blessed.
