Samaritan's Purse Afghan Resettlement Program


Samaritan’s Purse is looking for Church Partners willing to sponsor displaced Afghan families to resettle in their communities.

To join this effort, we need a Core Team of 5-6 individuals who are willing to:

  1. Get a background check
  2. Work together to create a resettlement plan (With Samaritan’s Purse guidance)
  3. Support resettlement for the first 90 days after the family/families arrives

These are the big areas we need to plan for:

  • Housing  
    • Know real estate in this area? Have a rental? Have an available additional dwelling unit on your property? Another creative idea?
  • Schooling 
    • Recently enrolled your kids in the public school system here? Been a teacher yourself and know the process? Aware of ESL classes in the community?
  • Legal 
    • Know someone who can connect us with a good immigration lawyer?
  • Jobs 
    • Small business owner with potential job opportunities? Other good job connections or ideas?
  • Transportation
    • Know someone selling an affordable family car?
  • Public benefits  
    • Familiar with how to access Medicaid? WIC? Food stamps? Interested in figuring it out?

We will also need volunteers who would be willing to help with a myriad of needs that will come up when the family arrives – rides, life-coaching, gathering household wares etc.
