The Refugee Task Force (RTF) was initiated under the AMA umbrella in September 2021 to manage and coordinate the Arizona Muslim community’s response to the nation’s Afghan resettlement project. The RTF consists of representatives from more than 20 Muslim non-profit organizations between Phoenix and Tucson. The task force mobilizes AMA's member organizations to efficiently and effectively aid resettlement needs of refugees.
What We Do
RTF's initiatives focus on ways to best help transition incoming refugees into our community. We raise awareness, organize volunteers, host community-wide drives, and raise funds from within our state-wide networks to address the needs of these displaced families.
Our services for refugees include:
- Project Management
- Religious & Spiritual Services
- Refugee Clothing Closet
- Furniture & Household Items
- Health & Wellness
- Food/Groceries & Hygiene

- Cultural Orientation & Coordination
- Legal & Immigration Connections
- Employment Services
- Family Outreach Program
- Foster Care & Youth Services
Refugee Task Force members range from motivated volunteers taking on leadership roles, to representatives from our member organizations. If you or your organization would like to join the RTF, email us: RTF.Admin@AZMuslims.org.
