Beginnings & Purpose

Refugees face a second struggle after escaping from their dangerous homes and lives and moving to the United States. After they escape, they must build a new life and home here. Doing so in a foreign country where the culture, the people, and the language are new is no easy task. They need assistance, so the Hampton Roads Refugee Relief Inc (HR3) was founded on June 28, 2017 as a nonprofit organization to help. HR3s purpose is to assist the refugees with creating a new home and life in the United States.

How We Help

Assistance in building a new life and home takes many forms from providing education to simply encouraging refugees to keep moving forward. As such, we offer a variety of forms of assistance. For example, one of our current and largest objectives is to provide high quality English as a Second Language (ESL) classes. Some other methods of assistance we provide take place in the form of programs we have created to aid refugees. One example is the dental (H.E.L.P.) program which aims to provide free dental care for our refugees. With such programs and education, we will help the refugees to build a new home and life in the United States. If you would like to learn about more programs, please click on the ‘Programs’ tab.
