GERA is an incredible organization and has become an integral part of helping refugees in New Jersey. It does an AMAZING amount of quality work in supporting the community. Volunteering with GERA has been one of the most impactful experiences of my life.
GERA is a great organization invested in improving the lives of those in need. For an organization that’s relatively young, GERA has had successes in assisting refugees through their resettlement and assimilation process in NJ.
Joining GERA was one of the best decisions I've made in my life. Working with young and motivated individuals to better advance our world is what our world needs. With their refugee tutoring program, it's refreshing to see people get a second chance in life.
For a young organization GERA has accomplished and done so much for so many different communities. I see them working with so many interfaith groups and government officials to help and advocate for those in need.
