About Refugee Services of Texas - Fort Worth:
The RST Fort Worth office was founded in 1996 and is affiliated with Church World Service and Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service. Since its inception, RST Fort Worth has provided resettlement services to more than 2,500 refugees, asylees, and other displaced persons. The Fort Worth Service Center has recently moved its operations to the Tarrant County Resource Connection campus in south Fort Worth.
Fort Worth Services:
RST Fort Worth has also established a community garden, “Refugee Garden: Growing Hope,” in partnership with the Tarrant Area Food Bank. The primary focus of the garden is to provide a place where clients can carry on a tradition of agriculture and grow their own fresh fruits and vegetables. Many clients supplement their diet by growing traditional produce that are not readily available in local supermarkets. The garden also serves as a place where clients can come together and learn about agriculture in North Texas through training held by the Tarrant County Master Gardeners and guidance from local farmers. This provides a forum for community building among native Fort Worth residents and newcomers from RST’s diverse refugee population.
