Ways You Can Help



Consider making a donation to one or more of our programs. You can give directly or in the form of in-kind items (furniture, sewing machines, appliances, vehicles, bicycles, toys)


Adopt a refugee family

SARA is excited to announce a new program that will allow locals to sponsor a Syrian refugee family in Austin until that family reaches self-sufficiency. To find out how to become a sponsor, please click the link below.


Become a catering customer

Many Syrian refugee women are excellent cooks, particularly when it comes to Syrian cuisine. SARA aims to facilitate a catering service by linking customers with cooks. By becoming a customer, you will be providing much-needed income for these refugee women, while empowering their path to self-sufficiency. Please click below to see our menu. 


Support the sewing project

SARA holds a weekly class for refugee women to learn how to sew and become tailors. You can contribute to the Sewing Project by donating machines, cash, fabrics, or sewing supplies. Send us an e-mail if you would like to support this project.
