The Dental Fund helps us cover costs for dental care for our clients, that are not covered by insurance.

Being willing to help a refugee means so much, that you are taking time and making the effort.

I encourage you to help them feel like they are survivors, not victims. Don’t mention the war; don’t remind them of where they are now in their lives. Just introduce yourself and be curious about them. Ask them questions about themselves as you would with anyone who decided to move to your community, instead of having been forced to move.

We seek a sense of normalcy, as well as a new start.
