New to America <3

Refugees_Thaler_005-1

Over several weeks the Documentary Photography class at Flower City Arts Center will be immersing themselves with our New American friends now living in Warsaw, NY. Several Nepalese families have relocated from Rochester, NY and are now creating a new life for themselves. There are many reasons that brought them to the country away from the city. Violence, self sufficiency, space, and the ability to small scale farm to name a few. I look forward to sharing our adventure and their story while catching up with our old friends from Rochester, NY and those new to America who still live there. 

This is Mary’s Place
Mary’s Place is a non-profit refugee outreach center in Northwest Rochester, NY. Our mission is to reach out in love, hope, and service to refugees of all faiths and nationalities, particularly those in the Maplewood/Edgerton neighborhood.
