Do you have the gift of gab? Would you like to welcome your neighbor by meeting some older refugees for coffee? Help support older refugees as they adjust to their new lives in the U.S. Some refugees have a basic knowledge of English but need to build their confidence, conversation skills, and comfort with navigating life in the U.S. Time commitment is flexible. Spend some time taking them on Fulfilling outings.

This program also needs people to help deliver much-needed supplies to this community across our diocese.
