Matthew House is a Chandler non-profit that builds bridges between refugees and the resources they need to access as they rebuild their lives here.  Currently, Matthew House is coordinating the volunteers that serve meals and teach English to the Afghan evacuees that the International Rescue Committee (IRC) is processing and housing at a Chandler hotel. Leisa McDonald, Executive Director of Matthew House AZ Inc, will share with us background on this nonprofit organization, assisting Afghan evacuees, bridging divides, and creating opportunities for refugee and immigrant neighbors in the East Valley of Phoenix.
