Millions of people have now traveled thousands of miles to flee violence and civil war. They have little more than the clothes on their back. Their lives will never be the same. The political and social implications of the current refugee crisis are complex. But our mission is to compassionately serve those in need, regardless of background or affiliation. The United States is receiving thousands of those refugees, therefore, In Michigan, we are partnering with local organizations to provide basic supplies and services to refugee families, as well as launching employment training such as Child Development Associate (CDA) and English as a second language (ESL) classes.
