WATCH: Refugees in Lakewood Need Your Help
The International Services Center provides assistance to about 125 families from counties around the world. An estimated 80 percent of them live in Lakewood. Want to get involved?
When Ahmed Al Ribeawi moved from war-torn Iraq to Lakewood last year his English skills were poor. He couldn’t find a grocery store, let alone understand the streets.
The Cleveland-based organization is looking for volunteers to help mentor new families moving into the area.
The organization recently hosted a reunion for the refugees at Lakewood Park.
Those interested in volunteering in the mentorship program are encouraged to call ISC volunteer coordinator Joanne Anderson at 216-781-4560.
