The local group Salaam Peterborough formed several weeks ago – – concerned residents who wanted to help the humanitarian crisis by sponsoring a single mom and her three children to relocate to our city.
Members Kristy Hiltz and Rick Fines both shared some fabulous news on Facebook last evening:
I am thrilled to report that the Syrian refugee family we are sponsoring has completed their interviews screening and medical exams, we are submitting our final documentation and paperwork, and they could be arriving any time, likely within the next two weeks!!
We are looking for leads on housing possibilities for our family of 4 (mother and three kids). We need to secure temporary housing (1-2 weeks) and long-term rental. If you know of available apartments, in-law suites, snowbirds who have an empty house, please let us know…. Centrally located is preferable, or on a bus route. Thank you for any ideas or suggestions.
Contact the group if you have a possible housing “lead” with this link to the group’s Facebook page.
And, please contribute to the Salaam Peterborough GoFundMe campain, and help this family start their lives in their new city – – Peterborough.
