Jacob opened the African Refuge, a community center in his new neighborhood. Somehow (and I’m still not sure how he did it), Jacob convinced nurses to volunteer their services for those without health insurance….he convinced immigration lawyers to swing by once a week, for refugees trying to get American citizenship. He finds jobs for the unemployed, and flashes a warm smile when people need them most.
Jacob’s center is open to anyone who needs it. He’s already helped more than 1,000 people…and now he wants to expand to other locations.
