Current Needs

Thank you for helping us with our current needs!

If you you’d like to donate something not listed below, please see our donation guidelines here.


Bus Passes for Jobs

RIAC Worcester clients are in need of monthly bus passes to access job opportunities in and around the city. These passes cost $57.00 each, per month. If you would like your donation to help a recently arrived refugee get to and from work, please click the donate button above and choose $57.00 as your custom amount!


RIAC assists many recently arrived families who have babies and toddlers. Diapers are a necessary yet expensive item which many refugee families struggle to afford. We never want our clients to have to choose between paying rent, putting food on the table or buying diapers. We are currently in need of size 2, 3, 4 & 5. Contact or call (617)238-2430 if you have any questions.
