How you can help
The federal and state grants we receive are not enough to meet our expenses and allow us to offer the quality of assistance that our clients deserve.
We would also like to provide driving lessons and other services. Thus, we always welcome cash donations for the Carolina Refugee Resettlement Agency. As a 501(c)(3) organization all donations are considered charitable deductions for income tax purposes.
For your convenience a donation can be made to us online via the
PayPal link to your left. Alternately a check can be sent to our
office in Charlotte. Please make checks payable to Carolina
Refugee Resettlement Agency, sent to:
5007 Monroe Road
Charlotte, NC 28205
