The MTAS orchestra performed a wonderful concert on September 10th to a rousing ovation from the crowd. Thank you to everyone who participated. However this is just the beginning. We hope to continue raising funds toward our goal.

International Rescue Committee
The International Rescue Committee responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises, helping to restore health, safety, education, economic wellbeing, and power to people devastated by conflict and disaster. Founded in 1933 at the call of Albert Einstein, the IRC is at work in over 40 countries and 28 offices across the U.S. helping people to survive, reclaim control of their future and strengthen their communities. Learn more at www.rescue.org and follow the IRC on Twitter & Facebook.
Your gift will help the IRC expand and deepen emergency responses to the refugee crisis in Europe; strengthen long-term programs in the Middle East and other regions; focus political attention on the refugee crisis; and support the resettlement of families in the U.S.
Freedom House Detroit
Freedom House Detroit is a temporary home for indigent survivors of persecution from around the world who are seeking asylum in the United States and Canada. Its mission is to uphold a fundamental American principle, one inscribed on the base of the Statue of Liberty, providing safety for those “yearning to breathe free.” In 2012 Freedom House became a formal partner in the Northern Tier Anti-Trafficking Consortium servicing victims of human trafficking.
Guided by the belief that all persons deserve to live free from oppression and to be treated with justice, compassion and dignity, Freedom House offers a continuum of care and services to its residents as well as to other refugees in need. Freedom House advocates for systemic change that more fully recognizes the rights of asylum seekers.
