DFWROS was started to help refugees successfully adapt to their new society. We’re working to help these refugees thrive.
Who We Are
DFWROS is a non-profit organization registered charity and is a tax-deductible charity. Our funding is dependent on donations by our community members. A nominal percentage of donations go towards the functioning DFWROS. Our goal is to have private fundraising (e.g. neighbors, friends, and communities) on a consistent basis and to encourage donors to sign up for recurring monthly donations.
What We Do
DFWROS was started to help refugees successfully adapt to their new society. DFWROS identified a gap in services currently available to refugees – MENTORING. We believe that to successfully adapt, refugee families MUST have access to a mentorship program as well as have their basic survival needs fulfilled. Our endeavor is to bridge the gap between refugees and social workers who cannot or do not follow through as guides and mentors.
Mentoring a family requires patient listening to their needs and concerns on a weekly basis. We help families with many things; simple and complicated that we take for granted such as: how to speak and communicate in English (e.g. ESL registration), how to gain access to skills, how to register children for school, how to use simple household appliances, how/where to store food, how to cross a road, how to get a library card, how to keep their apartment clean, how to maintain personal hygiene.
Our organization is dedicated to fostering an inclusive culture that embraces diversity and promotes equity and belonging for all refugees in Texas. We strive to create a safe, respectful, and welcoming environment that values the unique experiences, perspectives, and identities of our community members. We believe that an inclusive community is a stronger community, and we are committed to building meaningful relationships with all members of the refugee community.
Key Principles:Respect and Dignity:
We believe in treating all individuals with respect and dignity, regardless of their background or circumstances. We acknowledge the diverse experiences and perspectives of refugees in Texas and seek to honor their unique identities and stories.
We do not tolerate discrimination or harassment of any kind. We are committed to creating a safe and welcoming environment free from any form of discrimination, including but not limited to race, ethnicity, religion, gender, age, sexual orientation, or disability status.
We strive to make our programs and services accessible to all members of the refugee community, regardless of any barriers they may face. We work to provide reasonable accommodations to ensure that everyone can fully participate in our activities and programs.
We recognize the importance of cultural competency and seek to understand and respect the unique cultural backgrounds and traditions of the refugee community we serve. We are committed to building cultural awareness and sensitivity among our staff and volunteers.
We believe that collaboration and partnership are key to creating an inclusive community. We work to build relationships with community organizations and leaders to promote a shared vision of inclusion and equity.
