Arrive to Thrive! AAU helps recent Afghan refugees develop self-sufficiency and thrive.


We are honored to play a part in engaging, equipping, and empowering new Afghan arrivals to Salt Lake City as KSL just featured this week. For most, it just takes some initial assistance to find housing, navigate the US systems, and learn more English. See the full story on KSL.

Our Refugee & Immigrant Center helps refugees, asylees, special immigrant visa holder, parolees from Afghanistan, Cuba and Haiti, Victims of Trafficking with a T-Visa and their families achieve outcomes of substantive improvement, self-sufficiency, and thriving. Our linguistically sensitive and trauma-informed service is delivered by specialized staff who journey with each individual and family as they transition to life in Salt Lake City, Utah.

The journey begins with a series of intake appointments that range from a health screening to a needs assessment which equips our team to understand the needs of each individual. A Case Manager is assigned, builds a relationship, and works with that individual to connect them to the different care and services they need–English classes, employment counseling, immigration attorneys, housing specialists, and behavioral health counselors–whether inside or outside our organization.
