African Refuge

Serving African Refugees, immigrants and low-income families since 2003.

Drop-In Center

The Drop-In Center is a safe space where refugees, immigrants or low-income families can reach their full potential through access to resources, connection with the larger community and participating in programs designed to their unique needs.

Services include:

  • free immigration support, including citizenship application assistance;
  • vocational counseling;
  • resume preparation assistance
  • job referrals.

The Drop-In Center also serves as a space for community group meetings and a coordination site for programs and services.

The Center also provides used and new clothes to newly-arrived refugees and immigrants, victims of domestic violence or disasters, and single parents making less than $15,000 per year.
