We believe in empowerment. We also believe in delivering change!  Imagine what it’s like to flee your home in fear, to arrive in a new country with nothing but your life. AWC provides practical support and guidance through various programs and services for refugee women who are resettling in Clarkson Georgia, having fled conflict and persecution.
