Afghan Refugees Humanitarian Crisis
As you may have heard from various news sources, Afghan refugees are being housed at Fort McCoy in Wisconsin, Fort Bliss in Texas, Fort Lee in Virginia and Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in New Jersey. The Joint Base is playing a critical role in this humanitarian crisis by meeting the basic needs of temporary housing, food, medical care and resettlement assistance. Catholic Charities, Diocese of Trenton has been asked to assist in this humanitarian effort by identifying and mobilizing legal representation for immigration assistance, helping with the coordination of wellness activities for the children and their families and assisting with coordination of donations and volunteers.
If you are interested in volunteering to assist with wellness activities for children and their families or know an attorney who is interested in providing pro bono legal assistance, please fill out the volunteer intake questionnaire by visiting the link below:
