Working for the Buffalo Peace House was truely fulfilling and memorable experience! I was able to see first hand how what we were doing was touching so many peoples lives I'm a magnificent way. To be able to see people from so many different cultures come together and live in a safe friendly enviorment and learn from us and each other brings a smile to my and the resedents faces. I miss this place and the people everyday and I go to visit whenever I come back to town. Buffalo Peace House is a great home for refugees and asylum seekers!
