Helping people like Omar is at the heart of what we do

Last year, Omar was employed as a member of a shipping team with one goal on his mind - to better his future and move forward toward a job that could better support himself and his family. Omar worked with our ESHARA partners and got connected to mentors supported by United Way, bringing him the opportunity to learn new communication and management skills, complete computer training, and gain skills fundamental to success in the next step in his career. It was a proud day when Omar earned the role of team lead at his company, and achieved his  goal of earning higher wages toward a better future for his family.

Thank you to our partners Afro-American Development Association, Somali Community Development of ND, South Sudan Lutheran Church, and Sudanese Community of Fargo/Moorhead. Through our innovative collaboration, together we're helping people like Omar reach their goals and dreams. This is the power of community!
