After giving aid to the US during their time in your country, you flee danger with you family to the US and end up in Phoenix, Arizona. Now what? You don't speak the language and they don't speak yours. How do you get a job, or housing, or know what paperwork to complete? We've got some resources.

How to turn $10 into $630,000
If every Rotarian in District 5495 participated in Rotary Direct and donated $10 a month to the Rotary Foundation, our District would have $630,000 a year to use for District Grants and even more for Global Grants. Imagine how much lasting change you could make off of just $10 a month.
