WE OPERATE THREE SOCIAL ENTERPRISES:
OPEN ARMS STUDIO
Open Arms Studio is a textile manufacturer employing refugees at a fair wage in Austin, Texas, through advanced sewing training and fair-wage employment.
Shared Voices Language Services offers professional interpreter training courses to both refugees and other bilingual community members.
NEW LEAF AGRICULTURE
New Leaf Agriculture connects refugee families to the land, both by matching them to community garden plots across Austin and training skilled farmers to contribute to our local commercial farm.
Why support MRC?
You are addressing a global challenge from right here at home.
