Shoreline Interfaith Refugee Resettlement (SHIRR) co-sponsor group
of volunteers from Temple Beth Tikvah and First Congregational
Church, in partnership with Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Services
(IRIS), are thrilled that January 31, 2018 we welcomed a family of three
from Afghanistan to their apartment in Branford. The parents and their 2
½ year old son are settling into their apartment set up with furniture,
clothing, kitchen supplies, books, toys and more that was generously
donated. Volunteers from SHIRR are tutoring English, transporting the
family to appointments and helping acclimate them to their new
surroundings. The husband speaks excellent English and both parents
have college educations. Next step is to find them jobs. Contact Debbie
at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or possible employment
