Inspired by the love of Christ, Asha’s Refuge exists to assist the most disadvantaged refugees in achieving a successful resettlement in the Memphis, TN area.
Asha’s Refuge offers support and defends the rights of local underprivileged refugees through community and client education thereby reducing any overall negative impact on the unprepared local government, city, business, school and/or neighborhood dealing with an influx of culturally diverse group of people.
Asha’s Refuge will have a culturally sensitive urban basic educational system complete with student housing that offers disadvantaged adult clients American life, language and job skills needed for their successful resettlement in America. We believe all people should be given the opportunity to be encouraged and educated which therefore builds character, self-esteem, allows for job success, helps to reduce crime, keeps individuals self-sufficient (not dependent upon government well-fare assistance programs) and overall offers hope to families which will lead generations forward on a victorious path of success. We provide instruction in a caring, safe and healthy learning environment, responsive to each student, in collaboration with families and the community. Our clients are taught to embrace diversity, act responsibly and contribute to their community.
Asha’s Refuge is a faith based Christian organization. We believe that it is our duty to serve the nations as unto Jesus. The nations have literally come to Memphis and we have the privilege and responsibility of helping to bring hope to the hopeless by first, just loving all people as we believe Jesus would do. Love God. Love People. Just LOVE.
