Friends in Faith Refugee Committee

The family will celebrate their first year here at the end of January.  The children are enrolled in a variety of recreational activities.  The parents are been attending ESL and the father has been doing volunteer work that could lead to employment.  By choice, they have moved to an apartment on the north-west side of town.

The Friends in Faith Refugee Committee is a partnership between Georgian Shores United Church, St. George’s United Church, and the Owen Sound Muslim Association. Our Syrian family of 6 arrived on January 30th, 2016. Currently both adults are attending ESL classes, the children are enrolled in elementary school, and the youngest child is attending daycare. The family consists of Mother, Father, and four children with ages ranging from 10 down to 3.
