our friends from africa


We are a community of people who seek to welcome, care for and support Tallahassee's refugee population. We invite you to join us as we share stories, grow in community and spread awareness for these families. Our hope is that, in addition to offering these families friendship, that we would also be able to walk alongside them in their journey towards self-sufficiency and sustainability in this new life. 

Because the nature of this ministry is so relational, we ask that volunteers commit to seeing the family semi-regularly for at least 6 months. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn about a new culture! 

There are opportunities to tutor Nayenge and the children, regular transportation to the grocery store and allowing the family to tag along to local events and celebrations as a way to help them become more connected in Tallahassee. Contact Justine for more information.
