Be a Hero for Refugee Family Services
In 2013, RFS helped more than 2,000 refugee families achieve their goals and thrive in the United States. Our comprehensive network of programs includes job skills development, English language literacy, domestic violence intervention, parenting education and parent engagement, as well as early childhood education, school transition, academic intervention, mentoring, and summer literacy camps for youth.

This year, you can make an even bigger difference. Just this month, RFS announced we will be merging with our long-time partners at Refugee Resettlement & Immigration Services of Atlanta. The shared vision of RFS and RRISA is to build an organization that provides the highest quality services to clients. Both believe that as one organization, an unequaled continuum of support and service can be offered that extends from refugees’ first arrival in the country, through their education, training, and community integration. This continuum would culminate in their becoming American citizens, strong families, and community contributors who give back to others.
This new effort needs your support. We are counting on our supporters - past, present and future - to help us create a better, unified organization to better serve our clients and create the best possible organization for the community. Help us as we set out on this new journey to shape a stronger Georgia.
