Welcoming Afghans to the Triad
Following the fall of Kabul and the evacuation of Afghan friends and allies, over 75,000 Afghans have arrived in the United States to rebuild their lives. They are fleeing retribution or persecution from the Taliban and have one goal: to live in safety.
Since October 1, CWS Greensboro and CWS Durham have welcomed close to 400 Afghans across North Carolina, with 108 arriving in the Triad. These families need support with legal assistance, case management, mental health support, medical care, and employment. Community members and volunteers are making this work possible.
*The State of North Carolina has reached our capacity for Afghan resettlement, but CWS Global is working with partners to continue resettling Afghans across the country in non-traditional resettlement communities.
