Friends of Refugees
Friends of Refugees is a Christian organization whose mission is to empower refugees through opportunities that provide for their well-being, education and employment.
OUR CORE VALUES
Relationship. We believe that none can attain an abundant, thriving life alone. To effectively accomplish our mission, we strive to relate well not only to those we serve, but also those with whom we serve. We partner with churches, donors, funders, volunteers, businesses, development organizations, and fellow community members to leverage our relationships in impacting the lives of refugees.
Empowerment. Working with the vulnerable carries the risk of creating dependency. FOR prioritizes initiatives which offer a path to greater self-sufficiency. We create opportunities for accountable, supportive and effective decision-making. We provide environments where people are free to contribute not only to their own well-being, but also to the well-being of their families, neighbors and communities.
Stewardship. FOR believes that maximum influence and benefit for refugees towards its mission are the products of excellence in programs, continual improvement by staff and partners, and delivery of unparalleled value in the way we manage all of our resources. Good Stewardship of resources is a distinct hallmark of all FOR’s programs
