UU Friends of Refugees

Concord UU has a deep commitment to welcoming and supporting New Americans who have come to this country as refugees. UU Friends of Refugees has been actively supporting refugee families and helping them establish new lives since 2008, through Circles of Support that bring together a group of church members and a new family. To date, 7 Circles have been formed and have continued as long as the family needed support, often developing into lasting friendships. The families, from Burundi, Iraq, Bhutan, and Congo have enriched the lives of our church in ways we never imagined.
