When refugees arrive, people often think that what they need most are material goods—but these needs are often met by nonprofits and other government organizations. What they primarily need and want during this time of transition is a friend—someone to help them navigate this new city and culture and walk alongside them in this new phase of life. By volunteering as a Fruitful Friend, you're matched with a local refugee family or individual to help them thrive in their new community. This opportunity includes weekly time spent together doing things like exploring Charlotte, practicing English, and helping them feel welcome in their new home. This is a great way for families to volunteer together, and times and dates are flexible.
