Join the Edlavitch DCJCC’s Refugee Resettlement Team

The EDCJCC partners with Homes Not Borders, Lutheran Social Services, and SAMU to support both refugees and asylum seekers arriving in the DMV. One of our largest projects is fully furnishing and stocking the apartment of an incoming refugee family a few times a year. We also provide special programming such as refugee story-telling nights and ways to support the refugee community through advocacy.

For the apartment set-ups, the Refugee Resettlement Team (RRT) sources all of the essentials a family needs upon arriving whether through donating the items themselves, asking friends, family, and neighbors, or helping source through FB/neighborhood listserves. We then recruit volunteers from the RRT to come out and set up the apartment in person.

Signing up for the Refugee Resettlement Team puts you on the list for communications about upcoming opportunities to support refugees and asylum seekers. It does not commit you to participate but if you are not active for one full year, we will check in on whether you would like to continue being part of this team.
