Iraqi Refugee family

By Nell Warnes - Posted on June 08 2010

Live Oak Friends Meeting is working with Interfaith Ministries to help settle a refugee family from Iraq to Houston.  The family consists of the parents and four children ranging in age from 4 to 12.  They will arrive sometime in July.  We have most of the household items needed to furnish their new home.  We are still looking for four twin beds for the kids.  Financial help is needed to pay for the first month's rent and groceries.    Anyone interested in meeting the family at the airport or spending time helping them adjust to their new home should contact Nell Warnes.  We helped a family settle two years ago using this program and are excited to participate again.
