Refugee Resettlement

Through World Relief, the U.S. State Department and Office of Refugee Resettlement, and the State of Oklahoma, Rising Village helps resettle refugees from all over the world into Oklahoma through a legal, robust vetting process.


Resettlement includes receiving and welcoming refugees and helping to provide core services (public benefits, school enrollment, ESL, social security cards/ID, employment, medical care, mental health care, transportation, cultural orientation, etc.) and material needs (housing, utilities, furnishings, food, clothing, pocket money, etc.) for the first 90 days in Oklahoma.

Rise SEWING Program

The RiSE sewing and tailoring enterprise provides refugee and immigrant women with sewing skills, social integration, communication skills, and business skills training. Each woman who graduates from the beginner classes earns a personal sewing machine to take home. More advanced classes are also available.
