In celebration of NOiR’s 20 years of impact on fashion and the Michigan community, we are proud to announce our partnership with Samaritas. Over the last 85 years, Samaritas has established itself as a leader in Michigan and the nation in resettling refugees in America. Assimilating into American culture and society is an an incredibly overwhelming and intimidating process for refugees who only receive three months of government support before becoming self dependent. In conjunction with the U.S. Department of State’s Reception and Placement (R&P) Program, Samaritas has provided thousands refugees hailing from 15 different countries critical services ranging from cultural mentorship to professional development. On average, Samaritas’ support transforms the lives of 800 refugees in Michigan communities alone. Regardless of their needs, Samaritas is committed to providing each refugee family the custom support they need to become self sufficient contributors to American society within one year of arrival. Through their work Samaritas has made the American Dream an American reality for the most vulnerable families. NOiR is honored to partner with Samaritas and support their life saving mission.
