Richard Henderson Scholarship FunD
In loving memory of our dear friend and partner Richard Henderson who passed away on November 22, 2018 we have created a tuition scholarship fund in his name in honor of the many years of service he dedicated to helping those around him. Even before the creation of Friends of Refugees Providing Education and Empowerment he was active in reaching out a helping hand (always with a word of prayer) to the refugee community of Clarkston, Stone Mountain, and surrounding areas in the greater Atlanta area of Georgia.

Aside from tuition assistance, F.R.E.E. provides tutoring, Adult ESL classes, and assistance with job hunting. An event called Flag Camp takes place to help connect positive role models to our refugee children through play and positive interaction.
