First Place Update – April 13, 2017

First Place, our church’s home for newly arrived refugees, is hosting two young men during this Easter season. Hussein, from Iraq, and Osman, from Sudan, have spent the week obtaining documents and familiarizing themselves with Ardmore and with Philadelphia. NSC, Hussein’s refugee resettlement agency, has found a permanent place for him to live in Northeast Philadelphia, so he will soon be leaving First Place. Hussein will be employed as an Uber driver.  Osman, a client of the HIAS refugee agency, is learning English and looking for a job.  He should be with us at First Place until the beginning of May. If you would like to help Osman with English lessons contact Viola Terwiesch at 484-744-6633 or Sturgis Poorman at 610-547-2330.
