We wanted to let you know that in recent weeks, NSC has learned of major cuts to a number of refugee and immigrant programs. Most critically, the funding for our work readiness program for newly arrived refugees, which helps them secure sustainable employment, has been cut by nearly 75% over last year. This calendar year alone, NSC has lost or been forced to eliminate about $1 million in funds for refugee and immigrant programming.
If you were waiting for the time to give, this is it. More than ever before, we need empathetic supporters like you to help us remain strong and nimble so we can continue to serve Philadelphia’s refugees and immigrants. Please consider making a gift to NSC’s Campaign for Resilience today. It would mean so much to us.
Kind regards, Margaret M. O’Sullivan, NSC Executive Director
