It was great honor to welcome a great friend of the refugee community, Dr. Scott and her team; and we truly feel humbled, pleased and blessed to partner with the US CENSUS 2020, becoming a Census Questionnaire Assistance Site.

It would be also a great honor and privilege for SAUC to be an active partner on the Census 2020, and we will help Phoenix City and Arizona State get a complete Census count. At SAUC we believe that opportunities will never happen, unless you create it with hard work, based on a conceptual and intellectual dynamism that will allow you to act correctly by doing the right things, and having the courage to take blame when you fail.

SAUC have introduced programs for Increasing civic engagement and enhancing ability for immigrant and multiethnic refugees for 2020 Census receptivity by stressing confidence to overcome obstacles and barriers and equip them with the knowledge and information to clearly understand the importance of the Phoenix 2020 Census.

SAUC is actively committed in educating and encouraging the Multiethnic Communities to actively participate in the process that can lead toward a successful implementation of 2020 Census in our Great Phoenix area.

In April 2020 more computers were set up at the SAUC Community Center to help and assist more Multiethnic Refugees on filling the Census 2020; and so far about 1,011 multiethnic refugees were educated to understand better the importance and benefit of the CENSUS 2020 and 701 clients were helped to successfully filling the Census 2020 and the SAUC Community Center.

WONDERFUL REMINDER FOR MAKING A DIFFERENCE &

MAKING LIFE ENJOYABLE:

“Honesty and credibility are desirable characteristics and are important because will inspire trust in others, and integrity in attitude and action”

Happy Birthday Julianna & thank you Emily! May the sunshine of your both knowledge keep spreading the happiness on the flat faces, and you live longer.

You both are an inspiration for us, and you have been honestly serving the underserved and refugee community. You both are very special and that’s why you need to float with lots of smiles on your lovely faces. We hope and pray that life will always treat you both the wonderful way you both deserve.

All members/ leaders and volunteers of the SAUC and students wish you both all the very best, and may the next year of your life be full of happiest and joy. Teacher Emily by starting a new endeavor we wish you futures that meet all your expectation.

As everyone can understand, refugees after arrival in US must aggressively seek positive change, they must learn a new language, and in fact a new existence. It is always important to understand background information about the situation in the country from which this population has emigrated as these cultural dynamics are important to understand in order to be able to effectively help, serve and assist through the mentoring and adjustment process, and to enhance their receptivity to the new social change.

With the assistance and guidance of the State RRP, SAUC is planning and implementing several community development programs, which are organized according to overcome barriers based to the needs of the underserved and refugee community in Maricopa county.

Indeed SAUC is the bridge and catalyst for positive change, moving toward success in educational, empowerment and self-sufficiency programs, removing obstacles and barriers for refugees. Yet there remains much to do and many challenges to face.

Education is one of the key factors we strive to provide for the multiethnic refugees. LDS missionaries and volunteers are providing SAUC with assistance and supports for all the programs that serve the needs of the multiethnic refugee’s youth and adult.

SAUC is thankful and grateful to the Service missionaries and volunteers that are giving the gift of their time and dedication in facilitating the educational and empowerment programs conducted at the SAUC Community Center.

It is about mutual respect and a sincere desire to help each other, and we are very proud to confirm that after several years of partnership and collaboration initiatives we have developed mutual trust and understanding as we learn from each other in an environment of respect and trust.

Multiethnic Refugees are always expressing deepest gratitude and recognition for the great services offered.

We feel truly humbled and blessed, and would like to thank everyone who helped us through the way, giving us the opportunity to work and collaborate together.

Thank you!
