Refuge for Nations


Refuge for Nations is  a nonprofit social enterprise and subsidiary of International Friendship Centers. We create employment opportunities for refugee women through dedicated sewing centers across metro Detroit. We feel it is our moral and ethical responsibility as a nation to meet the material, emotional and spiritual needs of the immigrant and refugee communities while giving back to the greater community by feeding the hungry, caring for the sick, providing support to the hurting and much more. 

Free Industrial Sewing Class


We are now accepting new students for our free industrial sewing class. Open to all refugee and immigrant women. Must be able to provide their own transportation to our Detroit location.
