On this Thankful Tuesday, we at LCS Northwest are thankful for YOU. Your generous support has allowed us to prepare for an unprecedented wave of refugees from Afghanistan. We want to keep you up-to-date with the most current information we have about these arrivals. Due to the sheer number of people being processed and the vaccination timeline, the intake process is lasting longer than we expected.
We know that over 50,000 people are going through the intake process on United States military bases. Once this process is completed, the refugees will begin arriving in our service areas. We anticipate that they will begin arriving in the beginning of October. Our staff is using this time to line up safe housing options, employment opportunities, medical care, translators, transportation assistance and more for these individuals. We are also hiring additional team members to come alongside and support these individuals and families upon their arrival.
