Re:new Project engages, equips and employs refugee women in the Chicagoland area. Our greatest desire is to provide a space for refugee women to thrive as they rebuild their hopes and dreams in the United States. 


Our vision is to be a society that values and seeks out flourishing relationships with its refugee neighbors.



The Re:new Project (Re:new) is a faith-based, Christian, nonprofit organization that serves refugee women resettled in and around DuPage County, Illinois.

Re:new was founded in 2009 by a team of Christian women, for whom the mission of creating a space for refugee women to thrive represents a tangible way to serve refugees in response to biblical teachings to show God’s love to those in need, such as the widow, sojourner, and oppressed (Leviticus 19:33-34 ESV; Deuteronomy 10:18-19; Zechariah 7:9-10)

In partnership with local churches, Re:new provides a space for community members to build relationships with refugee women, learn about the challenges refugees encounter in the resettlement process, and live out their faith and love for Jesus Christ by serving refugee women.

We are committed to maintaining a Christian environment and to limit external influences that do not reflect the Christian values that promote the mission of Re:new.
