Our Mission

South Sudanese Enrichment for Families (SSEF) provides social support and educational and creative enrichment for South Sudanese individuals and their families in order to foster academic enthusiasm, confidence, and achievement; workforce readiness and workplace skills; financial stability; and emotional well-being.
We provide whole-family enrichment and community-focused services -- such as education enrichment classes, mentoring, job readiness preparation, housing support, tutoring and improving access to social services -- tailored to diverse needs. SSEF helps to bolster South Sudanese leadership and break down barriers to social equality both in the delivery of SSEF programs and in the broader Massachusetts community.
Additionally, we are committed to educating the public about issues regarding South Sudan and the American-South Sudanese community.
