"Building bonds between people, bridges between diverse communities, and links to organizations."
The New American Consortium for Wellness and Empowerment, formerly called the Refugee Consortium of North Dakota, was founded in 2015 by leaders of 3 ethnic community-based organizations in the F/M Area. The Consortium was created out of need to streamline funding and provide more of a structure to maximize resources for these communities, as well as many others. Many of the ethnic communities had similar needs so instead of duplicating service, we were created as an umbrella organization that could allow the communities to maintain their own unique identities, while still building social connections and making the most of the resources we have to offer.
The New American Center promotes wellness and empowerment by building bonds among people, bridges between diverse communities, and links to organizations. Through celebrations and programming, we facilitate trusting relationships and create healthy partnerships in the Greater Fargo-Moorhead Area.
