ARNIC Graduation Date Set

ARNIC Graduation Save the date: May 31, 2018

For more than 40 years we have helped newcomers to the US gain linguistic and cultural fluency through our educational programs. In 2012, with the vision and support of the late Dr. Andrew Romay and his close friend George Soros, we opened the Andrew Romay New Immigrant Center (ARNIC) which offers immigrants, refugees, and asylum-seekers a home-like setting to improve their English language skills, network, navigate American culture, and find support as they search for jobs or continue their education. More than 1,000 newcomers from 92 countries have benefited from this program while making positive contributions to our community.

Marietta and Andrew Romay Foundation Challenge
The Marietta and Andrew Romay Foundation has announced a special challenge grant of $25,000 in support of the Andrew Romay New Immigrant Center. In order to receive the grant, the Foundation has stipulated that the we must raise $25,000 in new restricted funds for the ARNIC program. Support for the ARNIC graduation and reception as well as the ARNIC benefit dinner will help us meet this challenge.
