COLORADO HOSTING ASYLUM NETWORK
Our church is coming alongside a family of 6 who is assimilating into the US after being evacuated out of Afghanistan. We are supporting the family through a partnership with Colorado Hosting Asylum Network. The father was an internal medicine doctor in Afghanistan, his wife taught psychology at a university, and they have 4 children. While they are waiting for work permits, they have been moving every other week to live between 2 other families’ houses. They have finally secured housing and just need a little help bridging the financial gap while they learn more English and wait for paperwork in order to be able to work legally.
There are several ways to get involved:
- To help them with expenses, please click here to donate through the Platt Park website. Select “Afghan Family Assistance” from the drop-down menu.
- The family currently needs some help with transportation (to the grocery store, to doctor appointments and English classes). If you would be willing to be a part of the transportation team, please email Cherith.
Thank you for spreading love!
