The Cincinnati Sanctuary Congregations Coalition has recently welcomed a family to temporary housing at Clifton United Methodist Church in Cincinnati. Heritage Church joined the Coalition two years ago, and is being called upon for support.
The family was admitted to the U.S. and granted parole status in order to apply for asylum. They are from the Congo, and have made a long journey through Brazil, South America, Central America, and Texas, and now are with us in Ohio. The family of four consists of a pregnant mother, a father, an 8-year-old boy, and an 8-month-old boy.
What the family needs now is help in adjusting to its new world. If you would like to sign up to work with a team of Heritage volunteers for one week, in February or March, to provide the family with transportation, groceries, and other needs, please talk with Russ Araujo, or email him at SanctuaryCoalition@huuc.net.
