The Foxboro-Steinmann group will be welcoming a Syrian Family of four to our community. The family is currently in Jordan. We don’t have a confirmed arrival date but we have been informed that it is a priority to move Syrian refugee families out of Jordan by the end of February.
The ‘dad’ is 29, the ‘mom’ is 21 and they have a 3 or 4 year old son and a 17 month old daughter. The daughter was born in Jordan so they have been displaced at least for a year and a half. The family will be living in an apartment on Hincks Street in New Hamburg. All the essential furnishings have been donated generously.
The Stonecroft-Steinmann group has also secured housing at Hincks Street. They are awaiting a “profile” for a potential family to sponsor.This group has enough donated items to fully furnish their apartment.
