2020 has brought unexpected challenges for many individuals, companies, and organizations. Despite the challenges, the YMCA has adapted by providing support for our community with regular food distributions to families in need, childcare for essential workers, creating initiatives to end social inequality and more. The Y’s continued commitment to providing these services has been financially devastating to our organization. Help us continue to provide for our community by making a year-end contribution to the YMCA of Greater Houston, a 501c3 charity, and help us impact those in need: https://www.ymcahouston.org/give

Meet Rafiullah, a refugee from Afghanistan who moved to the U.S. in 2018. Rafiullah was a professional drafter in Afghanistan. When he moved to the U.S., he was unable to secure a drafting job without a U.S. AutoCAD certification. He approached the YMCA for career assistance through YMCA’s Professional Recertification program where he was then able to earn his U.S. AutoCAD certification. Now, Rafiullah is an Engineer Assistant at Harvey-Cleary Builders, one of the largest construction contractors in Houston and a proud supporter of the YMCA.

Meet Cho Cho Me, a Burmese refugee turned American Citizen thanks in part to YMCA International Services. Once Cho Cho became a U.S. citizen, she knew that she could make a difference by voting. On October 20, 2020, at 5 P.M., she went to vote for the first time in her life as an American citizen. Cho Cho took her 15-year-old son, who isn’t a U.S. citizen yet, but who she hopes will follow in her footsteps to exercise his right to vote when he is able. Cho Cho felt excited and impatient to vote in her first American presidential election, and now that her first voting experience is out of the way, she looks forward to voting in all future elections. We’re so proud of Cho Cho and grateful to have played a small part in her journey to becoming an American.
