How You Can Help

The Lansing is home:

Global Institute of Lansing

Our greatest need is financial help to cover the tuition costs for students. We are also seeking donations for classroom supplies and snacks. We welcome anyone interested in volunteering in the classroom, as well as serving on our Board of Directors.

St. Vincent Catholic Charities

STVCC happily accepts contributions of diapers (all sizes) and household goods (furniture, dishes, linens,etc.) STVCC welcomes individuals who would like to be volunteer mentors to help new arrivals navigate their new home.

Refugee Development Center

We need your support to expand our services by opening a drop-in newcomer education center to provide basic-needs support and individualized learning opportunities. Every donation directly supports our newcomer neighbors participating in critical programs.

Samaritas Refugee Youth Services

Samaritas needs compassionate foster families and host homes for unaccompanied refugee youth, volunteer mentors to provide an additional support person and friend for youth in our programs and help them develop English skills while nurturing their interests and talents, and paid tutors to help youth succeed in a new education system.
