This means that members of our congregation will work with CWS to support an Afghan family, relocating to our area, as they strive toward self-sufficiency and sustainability.
The team’s time commitment will be 5-15 hours collectively for 4-6 months.
Some of the ways we will support the family are:
*Securing and furnishing housing
*Providing basic needs assistance and financial support
*Supporting self-sufficiency goals like practicing English and getting a job
Thanks to the generosity of congregation the funds for our sponsorship are already available, and Church World Service will provide guidance and additional help for us all along the process.
To be a part of this team, individuals will go through a background check with Church World Service, participate in a 2 hour training, and show proof of a COVID vaccination.
What an amazing opportunity this will be for our family of faith! Everyone in the congregation will have the chance to provide help for our family to some way—if you are interested in being a part of the team which directly works with our family, please contact Becky Pyrch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
