Immigrant and Refugee Village Needs

Democratic Party of Bernalillo County (DPBC) has adopted the Immigrant and Refugee Resource Village of Albuquerque (IRRVA) for December donations and encourages financial contributions as well as household goods and children’s clothing.

IRRVA, a 501(c)(3) organization, seeks through its Women’s Global Pathways program to empower the most marginalized populations of New Mexico, including refugees, low-income women and their families to attain self-sufficiency. The group achieves its goals through education, economic development, and strengthened life skills, addressing the social, economic, emotional, and educational needs of women and their children, as well as through direct services. IRRRVA helps with language interpretation, outreach, education, and advocacy to support refugees and their families as they adjust to life in New Mexico. The organization always needs financial donations and, especially during the winter, can use donations of household goods, toiletries, and children’s clothing. Currently it is collecting all sizes of coats, jackets, and shoes for children, toiletries, blankets, towels and other household items. Items can be dropped off at 120 Mesilla NE after calling ahead to (505) 435-5741.

A 100% volunteer-driven African community-based organization, IRRVA accepts donations at: or checks made to Immigrant and Refugee Resource Village of Albuquerque or IRRVA on the memo line at P.O. Box 93445, Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA 87199.
