Among The Lucky Few: Syrian Family Rebuilds In America's Heartland
Ari Shapiro with NPR's "All Things Considered" visited Toledo during the week of October 5th to see how different organizations were working together to provide support for Syrian refugees.  Our agency, US Together suggested they spend some time at the EFM Warehouse to learn more about our ministry, and our support to their mission.
