Each year on June 20th, we celebrate World Refugee Day to commemorate the strength, resilience, and courage of refugees around the globe. The Catherine McAuley Center provides educational and supportive services specifically designed to help refugees and immigrants overcome the complex barriers of U.S. systems.
When a refugee family steps off the plane in Iowa, they are greeted by CMC Case Managers and welcomed into their new home. In honor of World Refugee Day, CMC is partnering with Sleep in Heavenly Peace (SHP) to build 20 children’s beds for refugee families as they are resettled in Iowa.
NEW DATE: Saturday, July 31, 8:30am – 12:30pm
Hawkeye Material Handling Warehouse
1723 Hawkeye Drive, Hiawatha
