Our Impact

The NNIC has successfully resettled 64 displaced people here in Reno since August 2016. At least one adult in each family is employed.

The NNIC has a growing population of individual volunteers within the community; at the time there are 621. On top of that, each of our families has a mentor group which helps support them beyond the capacity of the NNIC. Each mentor group generally consists of 10-15 core participants who commit to an ultimate goal of having Reno's new citizens reach self-sufficiency. Many of our mentor groups are from local faith based communities including the Islamic Center of Reno, Sparks Christian Fellowship, Catholic Charities, Latter-Day Saints, Episcopal, Temple Sinai, and more.
