Rosi Crosby, Chief Strategy Officer, and Emily Griffith, Volunteer Coordinator of JFS, Jewish Family Services of Delaware, discussed their work offering programming that addresses physical and mental needs of area families, and the services that return them to their roots as a resource for newcomers, refugees from around the world.  They discussed the families and individuals now arriving from Afghanistan, and how they and their volunteers work with them to acclimate to life here.  They described the numbers coming to Delaware and the initial assistant provided by the government.  With their ‘Circles of Care’ they then help with school enrollments, English as a Second Language programming, learning to bank and drive and apply for programs.   JFS relies on the public to help, through donations and through volunteer hours, with their programs for youth and the elderly, therapy, social services and more, and their wrap-around services for refugees living in Delaware.
