TBA’s Refugee Resettlement Program currently assists four refugee families – three from Syria and one from Colombia. Our assistance includes, but is not limited to:
- Tutoring family members to help improve their English language skills
- Arranging medical and dental care
- Delivering food
- Helping the children with their schoolwork and serving as liaisons with their schools
- Exploring opportunities for job training and employment
We are supporting the efforts of Human Rights First, a nonprofit that helps asylum seekers living in the DC area. Currently, these families are mostly from Latin America and Africa. We have assisted Human Rights First with targeted collections and are exploring other support that we can provide. We are also supporting the work of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS), which works to protect refugees worldwide who have been forced to flee their homelands for ethnic, religious, and other reasons. We also work with a number of interfaith groups in Montgomery County to share information and support other faith communities’ efforts to help refugee families.
