Hi, I am working with two families who have been located about 45 min drive from Giessen. Does anyone know of people who help refugees in that area? Both families would like to find housing in Giessen but don't have the resources or assistance to do it on their own. Both families speak Arabic and are currently taking German lessons.  I work with them from California and would love to find some people in the area who can help them in person as they could use assistance with many processes. Thanks!
