Each year, RIC-AAU reaches out to more than 2,000 refugees and immigrants in the community. Many come to the United States with stories of war, persecution, and loss. But their stories don’t end there. Your gift provides much-needed support and opportunity for families to build safe and fulfilling lives in Utah.

Please contact Birch with any questions at .  

The Gift of Transportation

In Utah, 70% of Refugees don't have a reliable source of transportation. This is a big obstacle. They need to get around town to work, classes, markets, etc. and a BUS PASS is a wonderful way to make this happen! We receive UTA bus passes at a 50% off discount at $42 each month. You can donate now on our website to help reduce the cost to our clients by clicking on the "Give Now" button at the top of the page. In the "Comment" box, please write Bus Passes. Thank you for the gift of transportation!
