Our hearts have been breaking as we've seen the recent images coming out of Afghanistan. Many of our Afghan neighbors are worried about their loved ones who are trying to flee danger and others who cannot escape. We are trying to care for them the best we can.

The information we're hearing suggests there will likely be several hundred vulnerable Afghans coming to DFW in the near future. They will need our support when they arrive. We are eager to provide the help they will need when they get to Dallas.

The NCC is currently formulating a strategy to assist these incoming Afghans. If you, your family, your friends, or your small group want to help lead a project or help as we support Afghans, reach out to us at [email protected]. Thank you for loving your neighbor.

Vickery Meadows Apartment sublease - charming one-bedroom apartment for a single or couple Right in the middle of Vickery Midtown, half a mile from Half Price Books, Whole Foods, and an Alamo Drafthouse that just opened up. It's also about 15 minutes from downtown Dallas. Apartment has an outside patio and is fully furnished except the bedroom(including patio furniture). However, if you'd prefer to bring your own furniture we could easily store ours. Rent is $550/month, electricity is $90ish, water is $25-30, Internet is $60. Apartment is on the third floor. Ideally we would love to rent to someone we already know, but a friend of a friend is fine too. πŸ™‚ We need someone to move in mid-February, and the lease ends at the end of November. If you have any interest or questions please email me at [email protected]
I love the atmosphere at Northwest Community Center and I am excited to help with World Refugee Day.
