Refugee and Asylum Seekers Resources

America has a special responsibility to welcome and assist refugees and asylum seekers from Afghanistan, given the U.S. role in the war for two decades. Many Marylanders have reached out to my office to find out how they can help. There are many local and Maryland-based national organizations working this effort.

Below are a few government resources that can be a starting point for anyone wishing to lend a helpful hand.
