Higher Ground International centers on the cultural identities of those we serve.
Many refugees are forced to leave their homes due to war and violence. With no other choices, refugees are displaced and moved to other countries without knowing the language, the culture, or how to build a future.
To honor those cultural identities and to support the difficult transition that many refugees face, HGI offers a variety of cultural services, including culturally-centered community events, music, dance, stories; Culturally Appropriate non-perishable and staple food items and, in partnership with Meals on Wheels Rhode Island, a weekly Cultural Food Cafe.
The goal of our Cultural Services program is to celebrate the cultural diversity of a community, create safe and intergenerational spaces, and to promote the integration of cultures in our community.
