Greater Middle East Center: Open House Event

On June 21st, IRCO’s Greater Middle East Center (GMEC) hosted its first Open House where dozens of attendees celebrated the amazing milestone, explored the new center, and discussed the incredible impact made on local communities, since the center’s establishment in 2020. Supporting communities from the Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia to thrive in Oregon, GMEC has played a critical role in welcoming newly arrived Afghan refugees in Oregon, in addition to helping other refugees and immigrants from different Greater Middle Eastern countries. 
Helping 2,197 community members in this last year, GMEC supported refugee resettlement, housing services, economic development, health and behavioral health services, school enrollment, youth mentorship, and parent/child activities for early learners.
Thank you to elected officials, partners, and community leaders who attended and have supported GMEC in its expansion and in implementing new programs designed to address unmet community needs!
