Angels-Net Foundation Inc., is a 501c3 nonprofit organization founded in 2009 by two Liberian refugees who escaped the war-torn country in West Africa. Originally founded as a humanitarian organization addressing overwhelming challenges experienced by citizens of a post-conflict Liberia, the foundation has recently turned its attention to address challenges facing an increasing number of new immigrants and refugees to Worcester, Massachusetts. The founders have experienced first-hand the challenges of moving to a new country and navigating how to live and work in a new culture. From personal experience, they understand what services new immigrants and refugees need and what gaps in services exist. Their hope is to walk alongside immigrants and refugees in our community, empowering them to succeed.
Angels-Net Foundation empowers and supports immigrants and refugees to successfully adjust to their new culture in the Greater Worcester community through education, programs and partnerships.
Angels-Net believes in and operates by the core values of:
Valuing and having compassion for everyone
Respect for all people
Honesty and fairness
Transparency and confidentiality
Worcester, Massachusetts is home to an estimated 38,000 immigrants from 85 countries. Angels-Net Foundation serves immigrants and refugees in Greater Worcester, primarily from Syria, Liberia, Sudan, Nigeria, Ghana, Cameroon, Philippines, Jamaica and Haiti.
