Our families will get the opportunity to be good neighbors and welcome new friends to the Milwaukee area. It will give children and adults a chance to break through cultural barriers and create friendships in a loving and kid friendly environment, while providing the refugee-status families an opportunity to practice their English skills.
This event will be held on the south side of Milwaukee. At the home of Leslie Osborn who is the former children’s pastor from Eastbrook Church, and currently works with refugee-status families.
This cross cultural playgroup is building off our toddler camp hosted in July. Read more about that mission here.
