Welcome Wagon Update

Posted on Oct 10, 2016 | Comments Off on Welcome Wagon Update

JFS is currently resettling the largest number of refugees in the agency’s history, and we have been truly overwhelmed by the generosity and offers to volunteer from the Washtenaw County community. In order to accommodate this increased number of arrivals, JFS has created its refugee "Welcome Wagon" initiative – a large-scale undertaking to recruit, train, organize and oversee a committed, kind and responsible refugee volunteer corps. Over the past several months, JFS has received over 200 volunteer applications for our Refugee Welcome Wagon initiative. Due to the large volume of new volunteers, and our in-depth training process, we will be unable to process new applications for the remainder of this year. We are still accepting new applications, and applications we receive after October 10th will be reviewed in early 2017. We are truly inspired by the generosity and offers of support that we continue to receive, and we look forward to working with you in the new year. Thank you for your support of JFS and its refugee resettlement program.
