Make a difference in the life of an Afghan family

Does your organization desire to do something to support Afghan refugees, but not sure how? We’d love to guide you through a process where your organization, no matter your size or location, can make a huge difference in the lives of an Afghan family!

On October, 25th, the White House announced a new initiative to allow communities across the US to engage in the resettlement of approximately 50,000 Afghans currently living on military bases around the country. The Sponsor Circle initiative is the first time private sponsorship of refugees will occur in the US in over 40 years. This represents an incredible opportunity for community organizations to serve and care for Afghan refugees.

Is your organization willing to host one or more Afghan families for 90 days?
