Afghanistan Refugee Resettlement May Update
Twenty one Refugee Homes Furnished
78 Refugees Resettled

The Birmingham and Berkley First Afghan Refugee Resettlement Volunteers, as of the first week of June 2022, have furnished 19 homes that house 72 Afghan refugees. To date, we have furnished homes for refugees in Bloomfield Hills, Dearborn Heights, Westland (multiple homes), Detroit (multiple homes), and Hamtramck (multiple homes).

The refugees our church has served have come in a variety of family situations including single men, couples and families with as many as 9 children and occupy a variety of home settings including efficiency apartments, larger apartments, flats and single-family homes. Fortunately, your generous donations have made it possible for our resettlement volunteers to provide each family with a set of furnishings that suits their family size and living space.

There is more resettlement work to be done. You can sign up to volunteer in support of refugee resettlement by contacting Carol Driscoll by email ( or by phone (248.563.7278). We would love to add you to the team!

“I was hungry, and you fed me; thirsty and you gave me a drink; I was a stranger and you received me in your home, naked and you clothed me; I was sick and you took care of me.”
