Chaldeans are invited to this uplifting and rewarding opportunity of sharing their gift time and talent for the benefit of the hundreds of refugees who are arriving in the Detroit Metro Area. The Office of Refugee Services has already resettled more than 700 refugees this year, improving the quality of life for many Chaldeans. The office anticipates another 200 refugees by the end of this year.
The Archdiocese of Detroit is looking for fluent speakers in English and an office assistant to help with clerical work. Both positions require less than a few hours a week.
