Help needed to support refugee single moms

Helping a group of Syrian refugee mothers with young children is the goal of a new advocacy group that has recently established in the Tri-Cities. Nancy Furness, whose group is calling itself the Tri-Cities refugee welcome wagon though not affiliated with the greeting service, has been connected with three Syrian refugee families living in Coquitlam, said many issues need to be addressed if the newcomers are to integrate successfully.
