Our team is working hard to help with the Afghan resettlement efforts. Our focus has been two-fold the past few months:
To identify and support families with new and expectant mothers. Many expectant mothers have not been seen by medical professionals even in their late stages of pregnancy. Our goal is to connect them to suitable agencies in Austin as well as supply them with necessary mother and baby items.
Our second area of focus has been providing food relief. Many families are facing food shortages; some don’t have kitchens to cook, and many have inadequate funds to feed their families. MCSS is stepping in to bridge the gap and ensure there is enough for everyone.
