THE MISSION & MODEL
Beyond90 has a special niche and meets a critical need. Newly arriving refugees are placed in low cost housing and only provided enough funds for furnishings and rent for the first 90 days. A number of these refugees have lived in camps an average of seventeen years and some may suffer from disabilities due to the circumstances that caused them to flee their homes. At the end of this 90 day period, many refugees are not fully self-sufficient, which adds to the already overwhelming amount of stress that accompanies learning a new language, working, and adapting to a new country and a new culture.
Beyond90 bridges the gap to self-sufficiency by providing a safe living environment while they participate in a family self-sufficiency program that provide refugees an extended opportunity to acquire the necessary skills to be independent enough to work, live and integrate into American society.
Beyond90 provides transitional housing supported by a Family Self-Sufficiency Program that is administered by our parent non-profit, AS IT SHOULD BE. In partnership with other non-profits and NGO's in our community, we work to strengthen and empower families in the following areas:
Health and Fitness Development - To promote healthy lifestyles through sports, fitness and personal wellness.
Education and Career Development - To embrace education and to achieve employment skills that help them become fully self-sufficient members of society.
Spiritual and Social Development - To promote life skills, introduce positive recreational and character development activities while embracing and celebrating who they are.
