Welcoming Afghan families and Individuals

Catholic Charities of Central and Norther Missouri has put the call out to organizations and churches in the Columbia area to step forward with volunteers to assist in welcoming Afghan families and individuals to the United States. The three Catholic parishes are included in that grouping. Most of these people coming to the United States helped our men and women stationed in Afghanistan as U.S. military personnel, U.S. diplomatic service, or as U.S. government contractors, in some way, shape or form. They had to escape their homeland for fear of being killed by the Taliban.

We can help them become educated and working citizens of the United States. Please email me at or call me at 573-443-3470, and let me know if you can be a part of a team that helps them get started. No one or two people can do this. We need a number of people to work together in this very important outreach to our community. Email me or call if you have questions about what is involved.
