WELCOMING REFUGEES TO NORTHWEST ARKANSAS

OUR MISSION

CanopyNWA wants to see Northwest Arkansas become a center for refugee resettlement. We believe that NWA, with its diverse community, rapid economic growth, and excellent educational institutions, is an ideal location for refugees seeking to build a new life.

We are calling on our community to recognize our shared humanity by showing compassion and care for those seeking refuge in NWA. We seek to spur our community to action by connecting organizations, businesses, congregations, and individuals to all refugees in need of assistance.
