2024 All-Star Hometown Hero Spotlight

Our Helpers

Dorothy Hassan, Chief Executive Officer

Our Helpers is a women led, immigrant-founded nonprofit in Columbus, Ohio focused on improving the lives of immigrants and refugee families by connecting and providing resources in all aspects of human services.

“It is incredibly humbling to be recognized by MLS as a hometown hero for the work that Our Helpers is doing to help New American families improve their lives and transition from simply surviving to thriving. We are connecting the dots across organizations, partners, and institutions to recognize the wholeness of immigrant and refugee individuals, with mental wellness at the very center of our why. I am honored that the work we are doing is being valued and celebrated in a way that surpasses my wildest dreams!”
