The Refugee Empowerment Agricultural Program (REAP), an initiative of the RefugeeResponse, operates at the Ohio City Farm. The Ohio City Farm nourishes the community with local food and empowers resettled refugee trainees in Northeast Ohio providing them with employment, education, and training. REAP currently employs fifteen refugee trainees from six countries.  Ultimately, REAP will provide trainees with an employable skill set which will in turn stimulate the region's economic development.
