9. November, 2015 Comments Off on Refugee Sponsorship Project

The Refugee Sponsorship Project Working Group was established in September 2015 to fulfill the obligations of St. Elizabeth Parish in sponsoring a Syrian refugee family. Father Daryold and parish member volunteers provide overall planning and direction, coordination, and liaison with the Parish overall, the sponsored refugee family, and other organizations with expertise in refugee settlement. Added to this, Working Group task teams undertake the various activities involved in providing shelter, clothing and food; for securing health care, employment, educational and financial support–along with other requirements. This project will continue until the sponsored family has completed its first year as residents of Ottawa.
