Refugee Women's Alliance (ReWA) is a multi-ethnic, community-based organization that provides comprehensive culturally and linguistically appropriate services to refugee and immigrant communities throughout King and Snohomish Counties.
ReWA was founded in 1985 by a group of successfully resettled women who sought to provide newly arrived women with services not available from other agencies. ReWA is a non-profit, multi-ethnic organization that promotes inclusion, independence, personal leadership, and strong communities by providing refugee and immigrant women and their families with culturally and linguistically appropriate services.
ReWA advocates for social justice, public policy changes, and equal access to services while respecting cultural values and the right to self determination.
Today, ReWA operates from 11 sites in King and Snohomish Counties, and is comprised of 140 staff members with the capability of speaking 37 different languages and dialects. Many of the staff are refugees or immigrants. They work together to deliver bilingual and bicultural services to help the clients gain English and job-related skills, find employment, maintain stability, and eventually thrive in their adoptive country.
Refugee Women’s Alliance controls its operating costs so that 85¢ of every dollar donated goes into direct services.
