Review for Friends Of Refugees Inc, Clarkston, GA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

Friends of Refugees is an awesome organization that helps UN resettled refugees from war torn or impoverished nations around the world who get settled in Clarkston, GA (the largest refugee center in the Southeast). They help families adjust to all aspects of life in America such as finances, housing, language, school, employment, etc.

Friends of Refugees has also been extremely focused on reaching out and building bridges of community and friendship between people of different ethnicities and backgrounds. It is also one of the only organizations of it's kind that is active in this area. Very few residents of the metro Atlanta area (right outside Clarkston) are even aware that such a melting pot of different cultures exists in their own backyard. Friends of Refugees has helped reduce this by bringing in local groups and churches as volunteers.

Role:  Volunteer & Volunteered at a local summer camp held by Friends of Refugees for 3 summers in a row.
