Program Description

Event Details

A Home Called Nebraska, a documentary directed and produced by Beth Gage and George Gage, spotlights people who have escaped war, torture and persecution and introduces the co-sponsors who welcomed them, taught them and helped them find housing and jobs. The refugees are succeeding and giving back to the communities.
