Refugee Women's Alliance (ReWA) is a multi-ethnic, community-based organization that provides comprehensive culturally and linguistically appropriate services to refugee and immigrant communities throughout Washington State's King and Snohomish Counties. From a small, informal alliance of concerned refugee women, ReWA has grown to become one of the largest non-profit refugee and immigrant service providers in the Puget Sound area. Our programs are developed to respond to the complex needs of refugee and immigrant women and their families with the primary goal of making a positive and long-lasting impact on their lives. Today, ReWA operates from 10 sites in King and Snohomish Counties, and is comprised of 140 staff members with the capability of speaking 57 different languages and dialects. Many of our staff are refugees or immigrants. They work together to deliver bilingual and bicultural services to help our clients gain English and job-related skills, find employment, maintain stability, and eventually thrive in their adoptive country.
