Review for CHRIST HOUSE INC, Bronx, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Hi, my name is Isack. I came to the USA as a refugee since my home country had been in a civil war for over 15 years. I lived at Christ house as I went through the process of applying for asylum/refugee status. What would you do if you found yourself in a far and foreign country with practically nothing, and with nobody to turn to and not by choice but by war? Well, Christ house helped me first by assisting me with a place to stay, helped me to find and live with people who had the same experiences like mine, helped understand the american culture and showed me how to evolve in the American society and become a contributing member of the community. Through Christ house help and encouragement, I was able to find a job and go to college to prepare for med school.
I find Christ house unique because it helps refugees from all over the world and prepare them to become valuable members of the American society. Without Christ house I could not have achieved what I have been able to accomplish and I am forever thankful to God for having such place in New York City.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make sure this organization get more support and open more Christ houses. Cause many refugees still have no place to go right away when they are released from detention. Lot's of refugees and asylum seekers.
