Growing Together


Seven years ago, we began providing safe, affordable housing to a few of the newest Americans in Rochester, New York. Now we house hundreds of individuals and families and are proud to offer many more forms of support.

Rochester Refugee Sewing Services is a natural outgrowth of our mission to help our new neighbors thrive through social entrepreneurship. This adventure began as an effort to combine the skills of service providers and refugees for everyone’s benefit. The result is a welcoming community and jobs that matter.

We learn something new from each other every day!
