Our mission is to provide a multicultural and refugee-friendly space that serves all.

Our vision is to support the refugee and low-income population of Midtown Utica by providing educational and cultural programs, solving problems by connecting community members with other agencies and resources, and promoting a safe community environment for people of all ages and cultures. We partner with local nonprofits, organizations, and schools to enhance opportunities for funding, community building, community service, and education. We foster community by hosting holiday meals, neighborhood meetings, job training, and ethnic celebrations to which all are welcome. Our aim is to encourage environmental responsibility. We do not duplicate available resources, but guide individuals with accessing those resources whenever the need arises.
