Refugee Family Services, Inc. Charity Profile
Refugee Family Services, which was formerly known as Newcomers’ Network, is an outgrowth of the Save the Children/Child Care Support Center (STC/CCSC), Atlanta. It was started in 1986 as a program that provided childcare training to refugee women in the metro Atlanta area. Later, it grew into the Refugee Program of STC/CCSC, at which time it added to a wide variety of programs. It was incorporated in 1996 under the name Newcomers’ Network to operate the refugee program as a stand-alone entity and became a fully independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization on October 1, 1997. The organization was renamed Refugee Family Services in April 2002 to better reflect its mission. Our mission is to support the efforts of refugee women and children to achieve self-sufficiency in the United States by providing education and economic opportunity.
