Miry’s List is a nonprofit organization founded in Eagle Rock providing a mechanism to help families resettle in our communities as refugees. New Arrival Supper Club by Miry’s List is a social impact experience connecting people with their resettling neighbors through sharing a communal meal. Refugee families come to the United States seeking safety from violence and persecution. Over 350 new arrival families from countries like Syria, Afghanistan, Iran and Iraq have been helped by Miry’s List since its founding in July 2016.
