For over 10 years, GSF has been true to its core mission to assist refugees, immigrants, underprivileged and underserved find the resources they need to succeed. Our founder’s charge to "touch lives" means we develop programs driven by need. Individuals and families from minority communities struggle to find real help. We are the real help. Our work is in their neighborhood. We are open extended hours to meet awkward schedules. We work one-on-one helping individuals work through a crisis. We have been operating in the Rose Park neighborhood for three years and we are beginning to see the results. Neighbors are trusting us with their successes and heartaches.
