Syrian Community Network is a 501(c)3 refugee and immigrant support organization that builds community and serves families by addressing their evolving needs. SCN envisions a United States that is welcoming to all immigrants and refugees. We define this as a United States that unapologetically advocates for the safety, autonomy, and agency of all —- extending to the most marginalized in our communities.  Born out of the Syrian refugee crisis, Syrian Community Network was founded with the purpose of easing the transition of newly arrived refugees as they acclimate to life in the US. Just as the number of newly arrived refugees has decreased, anti-immigrant, anti-refugee sentiment has grown. SCN strives to continue its founding mission in providing a holistic model of direct service for all those in need — and building community by preserving culture — regardless of religion, ethnicity, immigration status, or sexual orientation. We maintain our original name, not to exclude other groups, but rather to honor the history of those original families who survived their experience to build new lives here in the US.

SCN’s values and ethical principles reflect who we are and how we stand as an organization:

  • Develop relationships that make a positive difference in our client’s lives. 
  • Uphold the highest level of integrity in all of our actions and work together as a team to meet the needs of our client’s and the organization. 
  • Value our clients and encourage their development and determination to potentially lead successful, independent lives. 
  • Exhibit a strong will to continue to grow as an organization to deliver and serve our community. 

As a voice of immigrants and refugees, we champion refugee resettlement by dismantling local, national and international resettlement barriers, and stabilizing and procuring support for refugees.
