Refugee One: Sweet Dreams Donation

by Symone Smith ( Junior)

About Refugee One…

Since 1982 Refugee One has walked alongside refugees on the road to self reliance: furnishing their first apartments, and providing English language training and job search support. Refugee One also provides mental health care, after-school programming, and mentors to help refugees integrate into American Society.

The ultimate goal of Refugee One’s programs is to help refugee families become self-reliant in as few as 6-9 months.

Refugee One is holding a Donation Drive this February and Senn High School is so honored that we can be helping out this year. Students are making posters, flyers, and even getting the word out with social media. So come out to our donation drive and help our incoming refugees.
