Aid should be easy to navigate, especially in or near a city. Urban Refuge puts aid on the map.

This app is designed for migrant and refugee populations who call large global cities home, and for the organizations that provide aid resources for them.
The app will also be useful to homeless, impoverished, or otherwise underserved populations who also call these cities home.

Simply choose the kind of aid you’re looking for (Health, Education, Job Resources, Legal Services) and find dozens of aid organizations pinpointed on Google Street Maps. Every organization has been researched and vetted to be trustworthy. Choose the organizations that are closest to you, and find a detailed list of information including address, phone number, website, hours, populations served, insurances accepted, and more. Plus, translate all of this information into your native language (including Spanish and Arabic with more coming soon). You can also use Google Street Maps to follow directions to the organization, or open directions in your rideshare app.

No login is required and we do not collect or store any data, nor do we track your location at any time. You cannot be tracked or targeted through this app.
