Organization: Overcomers Refugee Services (ORS)
ORS is led by and works with immigrant community members, and they have demonstrated strong community impact in their efforts to support immigrant community members in finding employment, starting a small business, and in placing them in stable housing. Through this capacity building effort, ORS will grow and build their programs and work in community economic development. This includes exploring Micro-business development for refugees, transitional housing through partnerships with under-utilized owners of institutional housing and mobile-home parks/ROCs, and establishing worker co-ops, for industries such as food services, hospitality, cleaning, teaching, and agriculture. ORS is already collaborating with a few partner organizations to expand their community economic development efforts, including Bangor Savings Bank and the NH Community Loan Fund, and they will continue to grow and deepen this work over the next two years.
