What We Do

We connect the local refugee community with American families in Charlotte through our Fruitful Friends program. The program is designed to match refugee families with American families in order to build lasting and transformative relationships that enrich the lives of all parties involved.

We teach self-sufficiency skills like cooking classes and financial literacy at our Help Center, where we work to help to empower refugees to thrive in American society. The Help Center also features food delivery, events for local refugee families and help with basic life skills. And finally, we educate Americans about refugees and the refugee population in our own community in our free monthly Refugee 101 classes.
