Wilmington Sub-Office News

Sara Pascal, Sub-Office Coordinator of Interfaith Refugee Ministry-Wilmington, has resigned to pursue other interests.  She will be much missed and we wish her well.  In addition, because that office has not received any arrivals since December and was unlikely to have many, or any, arrivals for the rest of this fiscal year and the next,  the office is transitioning from resettling refugees to providing services for refugees who are already there.  The Advisory Council is continuing to serve as wonderful advocates for refugees, and the office staff is still working as well.  For further information, please feel free to call or email Interfaith’s Executive Director, Susan Husson, at 252-633-9009 or shusson@helpingrefugees.org.  We are thankful for the support we received from the Wilmington community and appreciate all the dedicated volunteers who mean so much to the refugees they help.
