Emily Crane Linn is the executive director of Canopy NWA, a nonprofit organization started by Northwest Arkansas residents who are working to create a place of refuge for people fleeing persecution due to race, membership in a particular social group, political opinion, religion, or national origin.

Canopy Northwest Arkansas is working to support refugees who are resettling in its community. Canopy believes that Northwest Arkansas, with its diverse community, rapid economic growth, and excellent educational institutions, is an ideal location for refugees seeking to build a new life.  
 
As a resettlement center, Canopy provides refugees with everything they need to build a new life – a place to live, schools for their kids, language classes, doctors, lawyers, counselors, and babysitters. Canopy will help refugees learn English, put together a resume, evaluate their degree, and prepare for the American workforce. 

Canopy seeks to engage the Northwest Arkansas community by connecting organizations, businesses, congregations, and individuals to all refugees in need of assistance.
