Seeking Help for Refugee Family

We are excited to announce that Christ Church, in partnership with Lutheran Services Carolinas, has been working to help resettle and mentor an Afghan refugee family. The family arrived in Raleigh late this summer through the U.S. Special Immigrant Visa program for Afghans who worked with the U.S. Armed Forces. They are a loving and delightful family of seven, with five children ranging from 9 years old to 9 months old.  Christ Church was able to secure housing for the family and is assisting with getting the family settled in their new home, transportation to medical appointments, recreational and cultural outings, school help and general integration into the Raleigh community. The father (who currently speaks very little English) is looking for employment and all members of the family need ESL tutoring/help.  If you would like to help in these specific areas, please contact Kacey Ragsdale (kaceyragsdale@yahoo.com) or Katie McKenzie (katherine.mckenzie@gmail.com).
