Serving Displaced Refugees around the World
We are men and women who believe that healing in the Middle East is real, tangible, and possible. We seek to bring hope and change to dark places.
Roads Of Success (ROS) is a Southern California 501(c)(3) non-profit organization striving to advance human rights in the Middle East and advance the quality of life for people both locally and internationally. Back in 2007, our Egyptian-American mother-daughter duo, Yvette and Jacqueline Isaac saw the devastation in Syria and Jordan first hand due to the refugee crisis and it broke their hearts. It simply started with them renting a U-Haul truck and driving throughout Southern California to gather supplies to send back to refugee camps in Jordan. Through partnership with the Prince of Jordan, along with contacting any and every political and humanitarian connection they knew, Yvette and Jacqueline were able to send over their first container shipment to serve Syrian refugees in Jordan.
ROS is devoted to serving women, refugees (IDPs) and the underprivileged throughout the Middle East by empowering them through media and education, advocating for equal rights and supporting their needs to maximize their future potential. We particularly work with displaced communities in Iraq and Syria. We aim to help millions around the globe reach their potential and positively influence their societies for a better world.
We believe in a future where Middle-Eastern women and youth are able to reach their potential to positively influence their societies for a better world. Physical, mental, and emotional well-being is our hope for those who face major challenges. We are dedicated to putting in the hard work in seeking to transform the lives of those we serve.
As a non-profit organization, we rely on private funding, not political money. We always seek to commit support to the long-term affects and needs of the people and countries we serve. We do our best to spend the donations we receive this way to benefit individuals now and in the future. Below you will find our most recent audit reports and reviews.
