Support Havenly! 

Refugees in New Haven (and in the rest of the U.S.) continue to be marginalized and denied access to basic rights. As an organization, Havenly seeks to create the conditions that will make it possible for refugee women to set the priorities and strategies of their own movement for change.

Havenly seeks to break out of U.S.-based models of refugee integration that prioritize rapid employment and economic self-sufficiency over longer-term education and political consciousness development. Their community café serves as a learning space, source of income and advocacy network for refugee women.
