Afghan Evacuee Resettlement Partnership

Zion Lutheran Church and St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church are partnering together to resettle some of the approximately 60 Afghan evacuees that are coming to Berkshire County. Jewish Family Services of Western Massachusetts is asking us to form a HOST (Host Organization Support Team), a core group of 5-7 people who will work directly with an Afghan family in the months after their arrival to get them set up and acclimated to life in America. You can read more about HOSTs here.

There will be many ways for all of us to support the Afghan families as they arrive through donations and learning.
