ORGANIZATION: JEWISH FAMILY SERVICE OF GREATER HARRISBURG INC

In our Afghan resettlement program, we need volunteers to help with:

  • Apartment Set-Up: help clean and furnish housing secured for incoming families.
  • Transportation: help clients get to and from appointments, errands, and meetings; teach them how to navigate public transportation systems.
  • Mentorship & Companionship: adjusting to a new community and culture is difficult! Pair up with a refugee client to support them through this transition. This could also include help with job searching and preparation, cultural orientation, and other mentorship assistance.
  • Translation: if you know or know of someone fluent in Dari or Pashto, please refer them to JFS to assist with translation for our new families.
