RaFaSA provides a support network to attain due representation,
inclusion, and promote quality life for queer refugee families.
Their mission is to empower Rainbow refugee/asylum seeker parents and their children out of social
marginalization, isolation, and discrimination through income-generating initiatives, capacity-building, and
advocacy. It seeks to address Food insecurity and homelessness or poor living conditions, providing housing to vulnerable LGBTQIA parents at their communal shelter; emergency rent and food interventions to non-resident members.
