REFUGEE EMPOWERMENT SUPPORT TEAM (REST)
REST in Philly works with refugee families sponsored by Bethany Christian Services, doing everything from meeting them at the airport and providing them a place to live, to bringing them to doctor's appointments, providing language training, and helping them find a job. The goal is to provide a safe, new community for refugee and immigrant families where they will be able to thrive as self-sufficient, contributing members of society.
