The Hyde Park Refugee Project is currently preparing to resettle their sixth family in the spring. Be on the lookout for future requests for gently used clothing, furniture, and household goods. They will also be needing volunteers to teach English to both children and adults, and to show the family how to navigate bureaucratic ropes related to school, health care, employment, and other hurdles.
If you would like to know more about the Hyde Park Refugee Project, the Block Club recently did a very nice write-up about it.
