About RICE


Refugee and Immigrant Community Empowerment Center (RICE) is a community-based, non-profit organization dedicated to serving and assisting Refugees, Asylees and Immigrants in the Phoenix Metropolitan Statistical Area, created to close the service gaps that remain after the 90-day resettlement period.  RICE is directed by a team of leaders from all over the globe and that works directly with local partnerships to strengthen social services and prevent unnecessary hardships for immigrants and refugees. By advocating and promoting education, dialogue and awareness, RICE identifies the potential for new opportunities then integrates them back into our refugee and immigrant communities.  

The RICE mission is to aid refugees and immigrants in becoming self-sufficient and contributing members of the economic growth of the community by creating resources and opportunities to training and education in preparing for employment in the community. 

 To meet the diverse needs of the refugee and immigrant communities by creating resources that empower them to become self-sufficient, in turn giving back to the community and contributing to economic growth.

Providing effective services in the most responsible way to improve the lives of Refugee and immigrants in Arizona.



 Our goal is to provide services that will help Refugees and immigrants to overcome their challenges, barriers and becoming productive member of the society.
