About Us

Home & Refuge was started by two friends, Alina Sere and Lionel Lints, in response to the devastating news coming out of Ukraine and the unprecedented rate at which Ukrainians were becoming refugees across Europe and the world. 

Alina was born in Ukraine, and moved as a refugee to the United States when she was a child. She grew up helping family and community members write and edit documents, and immediately recognized the importance of this kind of help when moving to a new country. 

Lionel is an engineer and instructor who has helped dozens of students with their writing and job placement. He quickly turned his efforts to helping refugees with similar needs.
