Do you want to impact the lives of those in the community? You can assist those in our neighborhoods to make Milwaukee feel like home!

As a Be-Friender, you will be able to spend quality time with a refugee family that is in need of additional support and assistance as they acclimate to living in the United States. Volunteers will be able to practice English, explore the family’s neighborhood, and assist with homework, use public transportation, shopping, cooking and more! For, you will help the family write a story of hope, compassion, and the possibility of a brighter future.

Volunteers will visit the family at least once a week for a minimum of 3 months.
