Rosendale & Esopus 4 Refugees is a grassroots, volunteer church, and nonprofit group working with various agencies to resettle those in need to our New York State, Hudson Valley community. We are in need of your help!
Thank you to our partners & sponsors:

Welcoming, providing hospitality and resettling Afghan refugee families in the United States requires time, housing, food, clothing, transport, translations services, and financial support. The International Office of Migration and the U.S. Federal government strongly recommends that resettlement groups raise between $30,000 and $35,000 to help support each family that is being resettled and stand by them for a year until they are independently established. New Paltz 4 Refugees also recommends this guideline. So we are turning to you, our families, our friends, our neighbors, to band together and help us reach the goal to support two new Afghan families in Rosendale and Esopus. 100% of your donations will go directly to help with the costs of rent, utilities, transportation, clothing, food and everything else a newly arrived family needs. We can only do it with your help so, please donate now!
You can also send your donation by check. Make your check out to our sponsor "Church Communities International" which is coordinating donations and in the memo section write "For Afghan Refugees." Mail your check to Church Communities International, 101 Woodcrest Drive, Rifton NY 12471. Thank you!
There are many household items that our newly arrived Afghan refugee families need. One of our volunteers, has created an Amazon Wishlist to offer direct and specialized support. Here is the link: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/2R8E37KUTIDAJ/ref=nav_wishlist_lists_1
After you've made your selections, and are at the shipping page, please select "R & E 4 Refugees Gift Registry Address" as your shipping destination.
We know the needs of the families are great and this a specific and generous way for you to show tangible support! Thank you in advance!
