Give gifts of hope this season.
This season, give a gift that lasts, a gift that changes a life. Give a former refugee the gift of education, empowerment, and a safe place to call home.
Give the gift of education.
Give $50 to provide a child with one-on-one case management to enroll in school, as well as all the supplies they need to succeed in their new environment.
Less than half of all refugee children attend school. That's why this is one of our first tasks when a family arrives. We offer one-on-one help to families making sure their children are enrolled in school, can get there safely and have all the help they need. Canopy also sees that they have school supplies and the proper clothing year round and offers an after-school program for children in Fayetteville schools in partnership with Students for Refugees at the U of A.
Give the gift of empowerment.
Give $150 and provide 3 weeks of job training for an ambitious new American.
One of the first questions our refugees ask when they arrive is "When can I start working?" They are ready to take their life back into their own hands and provide for themselves. To do that, Canopy provides job training, help with resumes and interviews and one-on-one coaching to help them achieve their long-term goals. We desire to empower our families and support them as they make their American Dreams come true.
Give the gift of a safe place to call home.
Give $100 towards one month's rent for a refugee family-- or cover the whole thing for $600.
Canopy NWA is committed to providing a safe and stable environment for those fleeing violence and persecution. We are determined to make sure our families have all they need to thrive here in Northwest Arkansas, starting with a clean and comfortable place to live. With your support, we can commit to covering our families' rent for at least 3 months after they arrive.
Or give what you can. Every gift makes a difference.
Don't just buy a present. Give a gift.
This year, give your loved ones the gift of knowing that they have changed a life. Choose from one of the options above and when you complete your donation, write the name and address of your loved one in the Notes box. We'll send them a card to notify them of the life-changing gift that you've given in their name. You can also click below to print the card off yourself. Make this holiday season one your family and friends will always remember.
