Our Rotary Club is very happy to be supporting SLO4Home, a new nonprofit on the Central Coast that is raising money to help those who fled Afghanistan last year start new lives in SLO County.
Cathy and Steve Francis are standing inside a storage unit that will supply all the needs of a family's new apartment when they re-locate to this area soon.
While the nonprofit is focused on bringing Afghan families to SLO right now, it's not limiting itself to any one group. their mission statement is broad enough that SLO4Home could address other groups of refugees in the future.
SLO4Home's various committees will offer refugees assistance with finding a job, transportation, housing, governmental coordination, culture and hospitality, and more.
