I recently met with the Faith and Community Engagement Coordinator at Refugee Focus to talk about the possibility of Crossroads cosponsoring a resettling refugee family.
Cosponsoring refugee families requires a core group of 5-8 people who can attend a 2 1/2 hour training and then commit to partnering with the family for 3-6 months.
It involves things like welcoming them at the airport, welcoming home the family, preparing a meal for the day/evening of their arrival, helping with furnishings and food supplies, etc. It can also involve other helpful things like conversations, transportation to and from appointments, being a community guide, etc. , depending on the level of engagement & relationship we choose to develop.
If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity and being a part of the cosponsorship, please contact Heidi Shirley-Hawes, Mercy Director.
Hi Heidi I think I can help out in some way, I try to make an appointment to talk to you in the week or next, to see where I can be of any help. Thanks
