What We Do

Benson Area Refugee Taskforce (BART) is a catalyst for meaningful action to support refugees in Omaha through education, empowerment and relationship. Each year, our programming reaches thousands of refugees, hailing from 20 countries & speaking dozens of languages. BART is proud to invest in an often-overlooked population—providing the tools for refugees, especially women, to become empowered & autonomous.

Our HomeDish dinner program invites the community to personally interact & listen to the stories of refugee women, while enjoying foods from their homelands. HomeDish is a co-creative experience, mutually benefitting refugee chefs & guests.

Our newest venture, Refugee Women Rising, will continue to strengthen & serve refugee women by listening to their needs, supporting their talents, & collaborating for the greater good.

Interesting Info

In the past 5 months,15 HomeDish chefs have prepared 341 meals from Afghanistan, Syria, Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Nepal, Sudan, Bangladesh & Bhutan.
We pledge to include refugee voices in each initiative we undertake, especially uplifting women.
