Latest Update on the Demidovich Family

Irina, Natan and Timur continue to settle into their new home, and the boys are excelling at school! The family are now receiving Food Stamp benefits and Medicaid health care and are working with a refugee resettlement agency towards a holistic life plan.  We are still looking for a few items to make their new life more comfortable: A car – Irina is working on preparing for her driver’s license test and is in need of a car. If you have one to donate or sell for a compassionate price, please let us know.  A smart phone (Android preferred)– Timur is the only one in the family without a compatible phone to keep in communication with his family. Two Dressers, and low shelves for 2 bedroom closets

If you would like to help the Demidovich family with any of these items, please contact
