Mission Statement

The mission of the Refugee Family Services is to support the efforts of refugee women and children to achieve self-sufficiency in the United States by providing education and economic opportunity.

Description

Refugee Family Services is a non-profit social adjustment agency that serves over 2500 refugees metro Atlanta. Our community center is located within walking distance of refugees who have resettled in Clarkston, Georgia, near the largest concentration of recent arrivals from a variety of countries, including Bosnia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Sudan, Burundi, Myanmar, Bhutan, and Vietnam. The Community Center houses our Refugee Women's Support Program, the Women's Employment Program, the Family Violence Prevention Program, the Family Literacy Program, and a computer lab. It is also home to the Refugee Youth Program which serves over 100 refugee youth each year. Our bilingual and multilingual caseworkers and school liaisons provide outreach services through home and school visits as well as classes and workshops held in the community.
