My experience with Arizona Russian Center was excellent! They helped me to move for free, and collected and brought the furniture for me and my child for free. I never saw such help from Russian organization before. Since then I went to their events. New Year party and Children's Protection Day party were very nice organized, happy for everyone and very, very friendly. Thanks everyone, who volunteers for ARC!

Я хочу выразить огромную благодарность Русскому Центру Аризоны за профессиональный подход к проблеме и оказание помощи моей семье! Эта история произошла в декабре,а точнее 14декабря, в четыре часа дня в моего старшего сына (22 года),выстрелил пьяный мужчина.... а дальше больницы,клиники,центры. Мы боролись за его жизнь, ужастные осложнения,заражения, осколок пули так и остался у него в позвоночнике! Ребёнок остался инвалидом! Мы были в отчаянии, куда бежать,где просить помощи!? И вот за дело взялись профессионалы!Ольга Шахеева и её команда всегда спешат на помощь,тем ,кто в ней нуждается!Ольга очень много сделала для нас и за это ей огромное спасибо и низкий поклон! Олечка Вы спасли мне сына! Благодарю Вас за ваше внимание и понимание!Храни Вас Господь! Мира Вам!

This is a very good organization which promotes Russian culture and the Russian language in the Phoenix, Arizona area. The organization offers classes for learning or improving one's knowledge of Russian, special events to commemorate holidays or items of cultural interest, along with an ESL/Citizenship class. The organization is run by enthusiastic administrators and volunteers... there are some really great people there!

I had a great experience helping and volunteering with Arizona Russian Center. They are very fun! They are always trying to plan events to celebrate Russian holidays and set up all sorts of fun ways to bring the Russian culture into the area and share it with everyone through dances, dinner parties, and even dressing up as Russian characters and visiting schools and theater. Hopefully they will find a way to expand more int he future.

Great organization, helped me to complete documentation for passport and organized sessions to receive the passport so we do not have to go to Sun Francisco twice. Saved me a lot of money. I also like this organization for the efforts to bring Russian culture through offering variety of activities for major Russian Holidays. It brings together people of different ethnic and religious back ground with the common interest/love for the former Soviet Union/Russian culture and language. I hope they continue their great work!

In Phoenix AZ we have a substantial Russian – speaking community, and a lot of people who are interested in Russian/former Soviet Union language, culture, traditions, history, etc.. The Arizona Russian Center, organizes variety of the events, which provides an excellent opportunity for any interested to learn the culture, meeting new people, practice Russian, showcase talents, and celebrate traditional Holydays. One of the latest and big events, which was organized by ARC was a New Year celebration. The event was fun, artistic and very interesting. Participants who are new to the Russian culture, learned about the Grand Father Frost (Ded Moroz) and his Granddaughter Snow Girl (Snegurochka) and their role in the New Year. I hope we will have more similar opportunities to participate in this kind of events. I also wish for expansion of their organization for additional services and programs, such as language classes, traditional dancing, singing and other.

Я поздравляю работников РЦА и всех соотечественников Аризоны с большим достижением! На этой выездной сессии Консула Генконсульства России в Сан-Франциско 23 сентября, не смотря на предыдущие ограничения, прошёл приём документов у всех нуждающихся в оформлении паспортов РФ. То есть, людям не придётся ехать в Сан-Франциско и тратить большие деньги на этот излишне и искусственно усложнённый процесс. Мы выражаем признательность Варламову Андрею Николаевичу и Успенскому Евгению Евгеньевичу, вошедшим в наше безвыходное положение и изменившим своё намерение принять документы только у инвалидов и ветеранов. Спасибо Русскому Центру Аризоны и всем тем людям, которые заботятся о соотечественниках!
