Salem for Refugees, having recently achieved nonprofit designation, is now officially 1 of 4 refugee resettlement agencies in the state of Oregon.
Although Salem for Refugees has been around since 2016, as a newly independent nonprofit, they will now be able to expand their efforts and continue their good work of resettling families in the city of Salem.
