  2. Purchasing groceries for family before arrival
  3. Welcoming the family at the airport
  4. Providing transportation to family members to the following week’s orientation (always very needed!!)
  5. Becoming a mentor to the family by inviting members to events or taking them to the park, library, showing the family around their neighborhood for 2 hours a week for at least 3 months
