Why Embrace the Nations?

The United States, as never before, is seeing a constant and growing influx of peoples from all over the world. They are settling and raising their families in our communities as well as establishing citizenship. Some states are impacted more than others and Nebraska has seen especially high numbers of diverse arrivals. Embrace the Nations recognizes that these growing populations are particularly vulnerable and in need of assistance if they are to stabilize and contribute to our communities in a positive way.

Most refugees have been uprooted from their homes and forced to flee due to violence beyond their control. Their transition from refugee camps to the most technologically advanced country in the world finds them ill-equipped to effectively shoulder all that is now required of them.

Refugees receive some cultural orientation before and after their arrival to the U.S., but it is not enough. Language learning is on-going as are the needs for life skills and other necessities in order to survive much less succeed in America. This organization is able to help in these areas. Embrace the Nations also prioritizes sharing the Christian gospel message with anyone who is interested in hearing and learning. 

It has also become apparent that refugees are not well known in the community. Their appearance and culture are different and this can cause isolation and sometimes misunderstanding. Embrace the Nations is able to help close the gap between new arrivals and societal populations of the community at large.
