  1. Hi my name is Chasyaw (Kasha) Wortham. I’m looking to move to Lansing for the new year and need help finding resources for displaced families. I currently live in North Carolina and have been starting with family for quite sometime and just haven’t been able to get on my feet. It’s just my 12yr old and myself that would be relocating. If you know of any relocation programs please let me know.
