Fort Worth and the Refugee Crisis

Fort Worth and the Refugee Crisis

Local teen members of Fort Worth Youth International have been working with Refugee Services of Texas and been able to prepare an apartment for an Iraqi family that recently arrived in Fort Worth by creating a GoFundMe (“Furnish a Home for a Refugee Family”). Syrians aren’t the only ones in search of refuge—millions of Iraqis have also fled their country and relocated. Many come to North Texas because there are established communities, churches, and organizations specifically for refugee resettlement here.
