The recent crisis in Afghanistan has highlighted the urgent need for refugee resettlement work. In the weeks ahead, we anticipate thousands of Afghans will arrive in the United States. We have a moral responsibility to support those looking for relief from persecution and discrimination. Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon will be one of the key organizations in Oregon helping to do this work.
The resettlement process is complicated. It involves cross cultural education, logistical assistance, emotional support, legal assistance, and much more. We know that people of faith and good will want to help. We need financial support and volunteers. Would you join us in welcoming Afghans to Oregon?
SPONSOR A REFUGEE FAMILYThere are many challenges facing refugee families resettling in Oregon. One of the greatest challenges is setting up a household with very limited resources. If you or your faith community is interested in sponsoring a refugee family as they establish a new home in Oregon, you can do so with a $6,500 contribution. This would provide:
- 3-4 months of rent
- 12 months of groceries
- Basic household items
