Refugee Resettlement Committee Update
(409 reads)
"We can support one another, and face every kind of challenge with courage and hope, when we draw our strength from Jesus" @Pontifex 4:30 am 28 Feb 2018

The St. Joseph Refugee Resettlement Committee is actively supporting two refugee families. Please see the enclosed flyer for an update on the Stalo family. The Javed family of five, from Afghanistan, has moved into a two-bedroom apartment in San Leandro which provides them with a second bedroom and less rent. Mohammad continues to work full time and Salma is working with a St. Joseph committee member to continue developing her English skills. Rayah, the eldest child is registered for Kindergarten in the fall. As this family has become more self-supporting, we have been able to reduce our financial assistance and currently provide partial support for rent.

Please keep this family in your prayers and if you would like to join our team or offer support, please contact Bill McIntosh at wjmcin@aol.com
