Refugee & Immigrant Services – Story of Hope

“In the refugee camps, I just prayed for my family to be safe. Now, I take my children to the park and they feel the safety and freedom of this country.

Everything we have now is because JFCS. When I meet other refugees in Pittsburgh, I tell them to do whatever the staff at JFCS say to do, to follow their instructions, because they know what needs to be done and how to do it, for housing, jobs, how to take care of the family… everything.

They know how to ensure we will have a better life in this country, and in Pittsburgh. I am grateful to JFCS for the safety, freedom and opportunity we have now.”
