WVMA is teaming up with a local refugee resettlement organization, Jewish Family Services (JFS), to provide support for incoming Afghan refugees. JFS expects to resettle about 300 Afghan families in the next few months.

Finally, JFS is urgently looking for long-term, inexpensive rentals for the refugees. These could include apartments, ADU’s, or Mother-in-law suites. If you have an empty unit and would be willing to rent to a refugee with little to no credit history, please send an email to Melissa Hasan at Melissa@wvmuslim.org. Jazak Allah Khair!
