Who we are

African Refuge is a community-based organization which aims to improve the quality of life for marginalized youth, families, senior citizens, immigrants and refugees.

We aim to enhance the well being of people who have faced abuse, poverty, desertion, depression and the effects of war.

To achieve our mission, we promote community engagement and facilitate access to meaningful resources and activities that promote the dignity, development and health of youth and families.
