About Us

What started in 1920 as an Americanization Agency, a local initiative providing educational resources to refugees, has evolved into a multi-service organization with wide-ranging programs aimed at addressing the pressing needs of our diverse community. Over the years our efforts have resulted in building resilient communities that are helping to spur economic development, stabilize neighborhoods and revitalize our city.


Our programs focus on four major pillars of service: Education, Workforce Development, Family Services and Immigration, each containing resources to support individual and community growth.

Friendly House Inc. is a tax-exempt nonprofit 501(c)(3) and is eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions and foundation grants.
