About Us

We are… a non-profit organization privileged to serve Burmese immigrant families in Greensboro, NC.

It all began in May, 2009 when three volunteers started working with one Burmese family in the Avalon Trace Apartments. Our goal then was to help this family learn English, get a job and become familiar with what Greensboro had to offer.

Epoch Renewal, Inc. became a 501(c)3 in April 2010. The purpose of our nonprofit is to work with newly arrived refugees and provide services beyond the scope and in support of the resettlement agency. Our goal is to guide refugees through the trials of a new country, a new language, new customs and a new style of living and bring them to a status of self-sufficiency. We have seen growth in our people groups as they achieve a basic level of self-sufficiency but as we achieve one goal, that positive growth takes them to a new level that requires a new set of programs to move them forward.


Building relationships through cultural enlightenment.


Epoch Renewal, Inc. offers educational programs for multi-cultural groups to inspire healthy lifestyles while preserving ethnic heritage.
