“I was a stranger and you took me in”
– Matthew 25:35
In partnership with New American Pathways, a refugee resettlement agency and an affiliate of Church World Service, Shallowford is sponsoring a refugee family and will continue to play a large role in helping the family adjust and become self-sufficient in their new home.
If you would like to be part of the process, please contact a member of the Refugee Resettlement Committee.
Latest Update on our Immigrant Refugee Family
Posted on April 15, 2019
Our immigrant refugee family, the Hosseini family, is getting settled and doing well in Clarkston. Elham, the older sister, has completed training as a home health care provider and is working in the Clarkston community. After an extended health problem, Ghazal is awaiting word on several jobs for which she has applied. In spite of recurring health problems both girls have completed
courses at the Clarkston Campus of Georgia State University. Seyed Amin, the father, is doing well and receiving weekly home care. The family expresses their deep gratitude for the friendships made and all Shallowford has done for them.
