Our POWIR Team has exciting news to share about the Afghani refugee family our Collaborative has been supporting. On Sunday, January 9 the family departed for California, where they are relocating to be closer to their immediate family who have been resettled in the Sacramento area. We ask for your continued prayers as they take this wonderful step toward building a home in the USA.
In the meantime, our team has cleaned and reset the apartment (furnished by your generous donations.) We are anticipating new residents in our apartment by the end of next week. Our POWIR team is seeking male volunteers to help resettle our incoming single adult refugees. If you are able to help, or would like more information, please contact Mary Campion.
The POWIR (Parishes Organized to Welcome Immigrants and Refugees) Program is an initiative our Collaborative began in the fall of 2019,with the help of Catholic Charities, to assist in the resettlement process of refugee families.
