The Fortune Relief and Youth Empowerment Organization (FRAYEO) is dedicated to fostering the well-being of both youth and adults within the East African communities in Minnesota. Our mission is to facilitate cultural adjustment and enhance socio-economic prosperity by offering a comprehensive range of support services. Through culturally specific programs, we aim to create a continuum of care that not only addresses immediate needs but also contributes to the positive transformation of social and economic structures that perpetuate poverty. By doing so, FRAYEO is committed to making a lasting impact on the lives of individuals and the overall resilience of the community.

FRAYEO's Vision is to catalyze transformative change in the lives of youth and adults by implementing vibrant, culturally specific programs. Our commitment lies in delivering inclusive, innovative, and sustainable services that not only address the diverse needs of individuals but also foster a sense of social responsibility. Through these efforts, we strive to empower youth and adults across generations, working towards the eradication of economic disparities and the promotion of a more equitable society.

Minnesota is home to a significant population of East African community who are immigrants and refugees. While some individuals from this community have become emerging leaders in social, political, and business spheres, a majority of East African youth and young adults experience a high poverty rate. Several of the youth in our communities face challenges in accessing community resources due to various barriers that includes language, transportation and technology barriers.
