The crisis in Afghanistan may be happening far away, but there are ways to help right here in Boulder County. Several organizations have been working to resettle refugee families in this area, and community help is always needed. Christopher Liggett
of the OEF Resettlement Project says, “We will be working directly with these Afghan families to plug them into the community and get them access to safe, long-term housing, as well as supporting them in regular activities like getting a driver’s license, enrolling their children in school, finding employment, etc.”

These organizations are currently offering local aid to Afghan refugees. Please reach out to them if you would like to get involved:
