Established in 2015, the Syrian American Rescue Network (SARN) is a nonprofit organization that seeks to assist refugees on their journey through cultural adjustment with the goal of assisting refugees in becoming self-sufficient in the State of Michigan.

Our team is made up of passionate individuals working hard to create a peaceful and just world. We are a community-based nonprofit organization that aims to restore hope and opportunity for refugee families. Our members and volunteers are passionate, generous and committed to this mission. The group does not have a political or religious affiliation.


Our resettlement program provides humanitarian and economic support to refugees in reaching self-sufficiency in Michigan. We achieve this goal through linking refugees with employment services, housing, English education, furniture and household items, transportation, assistance with emergencies, and acculturation advice and consultation.

We seek to work with a network of providers in Metro Detroit to advocate and strengthen social services for refugees living in the city and surrounding suburbs. Currently SARN is focused on helping the Syrian families arriving in Southeast Michigan.

    Greetings from Ludington on the shore of Lake Michigan in West Michigan. Any chance of Syrian resettlement in West Michigan? Our schools are good; there are empty houses here; we have few electricians and carpenters; we have no healthy bakery!
