PRERNA is a non-profit, 501(c)(3), all-volunteer organization that helps refugees across all ethnicities and faiths become independent, constructive citizens.

 
We aim to give refugees a chance at opportunities that most of us take for granted. Through continued service to the less fortunate, we hope to expand to further causes and greater charitable efforts.
— Meena Sankaran, Founder and Executive Director, PRERNA
