Friends of Refugees Inc
April 29, 2011
I work in a refugee resettlement office where I work to place new refugees in their first job in the USA. Friends of Refugees runs an internet cafe where they help make resumes for clients I refer to them. I have never seen an organization with such reliable and consistent volunteer infrastructure. When they say a project will get done, it gets done almost invariably and actually WHEN they say it will get done. That kind of consistency is so hard to find in non-profits. Additionally I work with them on the community garden they operate and it has been such an amazing miracle to see the steady flow of volunteers they attract that help the refugee gardeners have what the need and a safe and peaceful environment in which to get in touch with the very work of creation.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
My neighborhood, my church, my office environment, my family and personal life.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
See it have better access to grants and funding since it clearly gets more than most nonprofits out of what little it has fiscally.
How does this organization compare with others in the same sector?
How much of an impact do you think this organization has?
