Montagnard Dega Association, Inc.
The Montagnard Dega Association (MDA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed in 1987 by the first Montagnard elders to arrive in North Carolina.
We exist to unite and strengthen the fraternal ties of all persons of Montagnard heritage, to create a positive environment for all to meet, to build safe, healthy communities, to inspire education and to preserve our cultural heritage.
MDA works in cooperation with other mutual assistance organizations and community groups, local, state and national government, churches, and refugee resettlement agencies throughout North Carolina. North Carolina Division of Social Services recognizes MDA as a refugee service provider.
