Project Worthmore is the 2019 NASN Community Giveback Award winner!

Project Worthmore responds to the need for assistance of refugee families in Colorado. Their vision is a world in which all people are valued, included, and empowered.  NASN will support Project Worthmore with a service project at NASN2019 in Denver, Colorado.

From their start offering makeshift English classes in living rooms, Project Worthmore now offers 6 comprehensive programs to thousands of refugee clients including, a community farm, dental clinic, foods share, community navigators, and family partners. Around ½ of their staff are from the refugee community, helping to better listen, empower, and support those who have come here to rebuild their lives.

To participate in supporting Project Worthmore, please bring some of the following care package items with you to the conference. If you want, bring an old t-shirt or pillowcase along with care package items and then create a DIY tote to hold the items using DIY supplies available on site.

Thank you for your support of Project Worthmore!
